Each summer, Esperanza partners with other local organizations to provide opportunities for high school students in our community to learn, grow, and have fun.
Using hands-on, immersion techniques that model real laboratory practices, Fox Chase Cancer Center’s Immersion Science program plans to share ways to bring inquiry-based lessons from the lab-bench to the classroom. This one-week camp for high schoolers takes place each summer at Esperanza College.
The PCOM Math and Science Summer Academy is an intensive, two-week program, designed to provide a pipeline that routes motivated students with an interest in STEM+M toward four-year degree programs and into training for the health professions. The camp will be led by PCOM students, alumni, and faculty. In addition, students in the Academy will have the chance to broaden their horizons through field trips to institutions such as the Franklin Institute and will hear from healthcare leaders from various specialties and ethnic backgrounds. Students will spend one day at Esperanza College learning about a day in the life of a college student. PCOM staff will discuss the medical school admissions process and provide career advice.
