Saints & Scholars

Pray with Saints, Learn with Scholars, Heal the World!

The Saints & Scholars Summer Theology Institute is a one-week, pre-college program that provides an exciting opportunity for high school students to live on a college campus, have seminar discussions guided by great faculty, and share community-building experiences with other students from around the country. Our goal is to support the spiritual and intellectual growth of the next generation of leaders—you! If you want to become a scholar who knows the wisdom of Christian tradition and a saint who has the courage to put that wisdom into action, join us!

Program Costs

A program fee of $400 covers classroom materials, accommodations in a campus residence hall for four nights, and meals. A discounted program fee of $300 is offered to those who attend a Congregation of Holy Cross school or parish and to those whose parish is in the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. Limited financial assistance for those who do not qualify for the discount may be available upon inquiry.

Saints & Scholars + Notre Dame Vision

Holy Cross College and the University of Notre Dame have partnered to offer you the opportunity to participate in Saints & Scholars and Notre Dame Vision for a two-week program experience. The registration form allows you to register for both programs using one application. There is an additional fee of $425 to add Notre Dame Vision to your package. Housing, supervision, and activities are provided over the weekend between each week of programming.
