Underneath that, there is white text that reads “With your help, we will send our 10,000th student on Summer of A Liftetime this year!”. The background is a dark blue gradient with yellow confetti raining down from the top.


Noble School’s Summer of a Lifetime program creates awareness, provides funding, and supports hundreds of high achieving, low-income students from across Noble to participate in summer academic enrichment programs at colleges and universities nationwide. This program is proven to forever influence the trajectory of our students lives.


During these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Summer of a Lifetime remains dedicated to preparing Noble students for college. We are so proud of our 1,200 scholars who participated in the summer 2020 and 2021, virtual pre-college programs at over 20 universities throughout the country! Over 90% of participants reported having positive experiences and feeling more prepared for remote learning in high school and college.

We invite you to watch this video and hear our scholars share about their experiences.


The Summer of a Lifetime experience is full of “firsts” for many students that participate, and as a result they return with a better understanding of who they are and have an increased confidence and focus to succeed in high school and prepare for college. The experience makes college a tangible reality rather than just an idea, for both the student and their family. After their Summer of a Lifetime experience, participants are thinking “when” I go to college, not “if.”

Summer of a Lifetime reaches students after their sophomore year when they are at a crossroads in high school, providing them with life-changing college experiences. It takes the direction of a Summer of a Lifetime Coordinator at each Noble campus to execute the process with each student – essentially taking students through the college application process at the age of 15!

“Summer of a Lifetime has prepared students so that when they go (to college) in the fall of their freshman year it’s not a scary experience. It is something that is familiar and something they’ve been successful at before.”
