Union College recently announced the start of its summer enrichment program FivePoints, a residential academic program for boys and girls.  FivePoints offers its participants the opportunity to experience a pre-college curriculum while living on campus.  Students choose one of seven courses to study for a two week session.  The coursework is age and aptitude-appropriate, providing a stimulating and supportive intellectual environment.  Student-to-teacher ratios of 8:1 affords the staff to get to know each student and learn to make the best of each individual's potential.

“This unique experience will be defined by the highly-trained staff who are outgoing, intelligent and energetic,” explained Mary D'Amelia, Union's director of Special Events and Conferences – the department that oversees external and summer programming.  “From classroom to dorm room they'll serve as role models, guides and mentors.”

FivePoints is a two-week residential program. Session I runs July 2 – July 14, 2006; Session II runs July 16 – July 28, 2006.  For more information on this program or to request a brochure and application form call 800-883-2540 or email
