This summer’s program will run from Friday, July 18 to Sunday, July 27, 2014. Please see our Website at Maryville College for more information and for the free, on-line application. This innovative program is for high school juniors and seniors (as of September, 2014). The total cost to participate is $1,495, which includes room, food, and all other student expenses during the class including transportation between Maryville College, Tremont, and other sites.
The Great Smokies Experience is a one-of-a-kind partnership between Maryville College, The Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, and the Mountain Challenge Program. It is designed for rising high school juniors and seniors, and successful participants will earn credit for a three-hour college class.
