For Participants

Who is eligible to enroll in the Summer Owls Leadership Experience?
Temple welcomes academically talented and motivated rising high school junior and senior students to the program. Minimum GPA requirement is 3.0.

Is this only a residential program?
This program is not limited to residential candidates. Students who prefer to commute on a daily basis can still opt into joining weekend activities with their peers.

For Parents

What is the extent of supervision participants will receive?
Students will spend their days with other program participants. In most cases, they will be part of a group overseen by college-student mentors and residence-hall staff outside the classroom. During classroom breaks and other non-group times, a buddy system will be implemented.

Are participants allowed to commute to campus?
We welcome all students willing to dedicate part of their summer to getting a head start on their college experience. Non residential options are available. Commuter students also have the option of joining their peers on the weekend activities.
