The JKCP instructors are what set us apart from other programs. We select our instructors for both their expertise and their love for what they do best. This passion makes each class engaging, fun and really different than your typical high school class. All of our instructors are subject matter experts and 95% have a Masters Degree. We have a completely separate residential staff to handle dorm life and all the activities outside of the classroom. 


College Life. 

From meeting your new roommate, walking to class on the beautiful campus, eating in the dining halls and taking classes in the historic buildings, you’ll get a taste of what life as a college student is really like. You’ll love the modern facilities, air-conditioned dorms, snack shops, WiFi and state-of-the-art athletic spaces.

International Experience. 

About 40% of students come from around the world to join us each summer. Every year we hear how much students enjoy meeting people from all over the country and the world and how it opened their eyes to different parts of the globe.

Trips & Activities.

One of the best parts of JKCP is the activities. Every evening there is a planned event. Sometimes we stay on campus, and other nights we’ll travel to a local venue for an off-campus activity. Trips are offered every Saturday to regional destinations of your choice. And Sundays are for exploring the Philadelphia region.
