For High School Students

Telluride has suspended its summer programs in 2021. We look forward to once again offering these transformative experiences in 2022 and beyond. Please check back here next Fall for more information.

TAOS

The Telluride Association Online Seminar (TAOS) was a six-week ONLINE educational experience for high school sophomores and juniors that provided an online Telluridean education to 2020’s cohort of TASS and TASP admits, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

TASS

The Telluride Association Sophomore Seminar (TASS) offers bright, motivated high school sophomores challenging six-week college-level courses in critical Black and ethnic studies.  We work with university faculty to create exciting courses designed to inspire young people to explore the the histories, politics and cultural experiences of people of African descent and a variety of other topics.  Because we believe that students should have the opportunity to pursue their ideals, we cover all the program costs, including tuition, books, room and board, field trips, and facilities fees. Students with financial need may apply for additional assistance with travel costs and a subsidy to replace summer earnings.

TASP

A Telluride Association Summer Program (TASP) is a six-week educational experience for high school juniors that offers challenges and rewards rarely encountered in secondary school or even college.  Each program is designed to bring together young people from around the world who share a passion for learning. Participants (“TASPers”) attend a seminar led by college and university faculty members and participate in many other educational and social activities outside the classroom. Because we believe that students should have the opportunity to pursue their ideals, we cover all the program costs, including tuition, books, room and board, field trips, and facilities fees. Students with financial need may apply for additional assistance with travel costs and a subsidy to replace summer earnings.
