Have you thought about Upward Bound, a lot of HBCUs offer that in the summer time. You take classes and get to stay on campus. Among other things I presume.

Hmmm I think upward bound is for the less fortunate but I'm not a 100%. I know my half sister went and she was living with our elderly grandmother and my aunt pulled some strings so she could go but I'm not 100% on that one. But what grade are you in because I know a lot of schools have pre-college but I'm guessing you're still in high school. I know the Community College in my county has summer enrichment programs they're not for credits or anything though. I also know a classmate of mine did a program at Spelman and she had just finishedher junior year and that was for credits ... Hope something helped a lil.
