The Summer College Opportunity Program in Education (S.C.O.P.E) is a program under the College of Education at The Pennsylvania State University. The program provides current high school sophomores from diverse backgrounds with an opportunity to experience college course work and learn about careers in the education field.

The Program will begin virtually from July 5th through July 8th and will then transition to residential at the University Park campus, located in State College, Pennsylvania from July 10th through July 29th. S.C.O.P.E. is an intensive academic experience that will require students to participate in various college preparatory courses over a four-week period.
