Attention High School Students

Gordon College wants your first encounter with a college-level course to be as successful and rewarding as possible. We will ask you to provide a reference from a teacher that indicates you are prepared for college-level work. Furthermore, there are some courses our professors have indicated may not provide the type of first college experience we or you seek. Please contact our office to arrange a time we can discuss your interests and guide you to the course that will best serve your needs and interests.
