DREAMS Program

Where Inspiration is transformed into action

Each June, DeSales University sponsors the DREAMS program, which offers educational enrichment in the areas of the sciences, math and English to high school students from the Lehigh Valley. Students learn the both importance of a college education and that is an obtainable goal. 

With a combination of classroom learning and out of class events, the students will receive knowledge and hands-on experiences, all while living in one of our residence halls. Unlike many other summer programs, DeSales offers students support for the entire year.  

Each DREAMS student is paired with a DeSales University student mentor who is with them for the week-long experience in June, but also maintains contact throughout the academic year.  By supporting the students beyond the one week spent on campus, relationships develop and educational growth is fostered throughout the year.
