Emmanuel College is one of 140 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 to $500,000 each through the Cummings Foundation’s $25 Million Grant Program.
Emmanuel’s Summer Residential Enrichment Programs offer high school students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the life of our beautiful 17-acre residential campus in the heart of Boston. Through these engaging college-style academic experiences, students attain practical skills, engage their entrepreneurial spirit and build their portfolios—all while living on our college campus for an extended time.
Taught by Emmanuel College faculty members, Summer Residential Enrichment Program courses are designed to provide students of all academic interests an intensive learning experience in the thriving, global, culturally rich city of Boston. Blending classroom instruction with evening-structured learning activities and subject-related field visits, these courses expose high school students to the experience of living and learning at Emmanuel College.
Boston is renowned for its mix of long-established institutions and vibrant startup culture. Here, the possibilities for cultivating real-world, hands-on experience are nearly limitless. A short walk or ride on the "T" places students at the doorsteps of dozens of industry-leading organizations in areas of research, technology, finance, media, healthcare, social service and more. Here, they obtain internship and career opportunities that students and graduates in other cities may only ever aspire to experience.
Emmanuel’s home in the heart of the city is a huge part of the student life experience. In a cultural capital as dynamic as Boston, there is always something new to see or an old favorite to revisit. Our students enjoy all city life has to offer—exhilarating games and hard-won championships by our hometown sports teams, tons of green space and waterfront views, celebrated works of art, music and theater, and of course, some of the best food in the country.
