For High School Students and Heads of School

Undergraduate students may be the largest cluster on campus, but Gordon’s resources and opportunities extend well beyond the college age. We are pleased to partner with high schools around the country to offer programs for students and professionals. Gordon helps individuals stretch their minds, deepen their faith and envision ways that they might elevate their contribution to society—before they even enter college, and well into their careers.


Adirondack Leadership Program

Run by Gordon's La Vida Center for Outdoor Education and Leadership (one of the first of its kind in the country), this 10-day program challenges high school students to nurture their leadership potential and character development through adventure and experiential outdoor learning. Adirondack Leadership Program

Dual Enrollment

High school students can begin their college careers while still in high school, and at a very affordable price, through the dual enrollment program. Students will have the opportunity to participate in college-level courses that illustrate how faith and knowledge are complementary, not contradictory, while engaging with Gordon College students and faculty. Courses are offered online during the fall and spring semesters. Dual enrollment


Imagine a week filled with carpentry and culinary classes, excursions to the buzzing city of Boston, and intentional discipleship within a small cohort of students from around the country. This growth-focused summer honors program for high school students blends the wisdom of the liberal arts tradition with a community-based college lifestyle. On Gordon's beautiful campus, students will cultivate a love for beauty, reflection, and hospitality while deepening relationships with their cohort and Creator. Heritage: Cultivate Your Classical Roots
