About Summer Discovery & Summer Institute for the Gifted (SIG)

Summer Discovery has directed award-winning, well-supervised, educational pre-college summer programs for students for over 50 years. Year after year, we receive positive recommendations from thousands of satisfied students, parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators.

Our unique partnerships with some of the world's most prestigious universities allow our students unparalleled access to great academics, high-school internships, enrichment courses, community service, cultural immersion, sports, and residential life. Join us on campus this summer, facilitating programs for a wonderful group of middle school and high school students from all over the U.S., and around the world.

Summer Discovery embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.


Resident Counselor

June 2023 - July 2023 Bryn Mawr, PA
“I enjoyed how our training was set up - we had time to get to know the admin staff and our fellow counselors and develop a rapport before the kids arrived. My admin staff was flexible and always took the time to acknowledge us for all we do. I also enjoyed how our day was structured - we generally stuck to the same routine, but there was always room for fun and flexibility!”
