MC Micro Semesters

Monticello College offers an intense experience for inquiring students who want to investigate the college without a full semester or year tuition obligation.

Read what summer 2019 students are saying:

“The Micro-semester was the perfect environment to reconnect me with nature. The hikes, projects, and experiences brought me an appreciation for nature, hard work and sacrifice. I love getting up early, bundling up by the fire, eating lots of greens, and being in nature. The discussions were invigorating, the challenge is rewarding, and the friendships lasting.”

—Connor Craig – Provo, UT

"I attended two consecutive Micro-semesters at Monticello College this summer. I loved the classes, we had great discussions and it was good to discuss ideas with other students who also care about important things. My favorite part was the Permaculture Design Course. I learned about the land and became more aware of God’s creations and the how the patterns of those creations work. It was a valuable experience, not just to get to know more about the college, but the time with the animals, being out in nature, and reading and discussing the Great Books was well worth the cost. I made long lasting friendships. What a great introduction to the liberal arts and the manual arts. I was challenged—it was fun—I am inspired."

— Abigail Levie – Mapleton, UT

"If you want an introduction to a great education, attend a Micro-semester at Monticello College. I have learned many great ideas from the few classes I had the privilege to attend during my all too short stay here. The living campus is amazing to experience. Caring for animals, tending the orchard and greenhouses, and learning different aspects of construction were all very enjoyable and enlightening. If these things interest you, there is no better place to experience them than at Monticello College."

— Weston Hyer – Bonner Ferry, ID
