Central Honors Institute Scholarship Application

The Central Honors Institute (CHI) is a five-day residential academic camp for middle school students who will be entering the 7th or 8th grade in the fall of 2019 and who have demonstrated academic accomplishments, leadership and maturity among their peers.  To be eligible to attend, students must complete a CHI application and have a school official fill out the recommendation form under the ‘School Section’ of the application.

CHI campers attend academic classes during the day, socialize with peers in the evenings and fully experience life on a college campus, complete with dorm food and residence halls. Central Community College-Columbus has been proud to host CHI campers since 2003.

CHI Academic Program

During the week, campers will follow one of four academic tracks. They can apply to be a part of CSI at CHI, CHI Stream Team, CHI Creativity or FLY CHI. CHI faculty have distinguished instructional credentials and have been selected for their experience and enthusiasm working with this age group.

While the typical CHI student excels at academics, many are pleasantly surprised by the challenging academic experiences they will have at camp. Best of all, our CHI learning environment supports acceptance, growth and excellence.

CHI Social Program

Having fun and learning to feel confident in a new setting are important components of the CHI agenda. Our social program includes activities such as swimming, bowling, putt-putt, Frisbee golf, table games, group games and relays. CHI draws from a large geographic area which allows campers to meet kids from other schools and cities and have the opportunity to form friendships beyond their normal peer group.

To Attend CHI

To apply for the Central Honors Institute, complete the application and have a school official complete the recommendation form under the ‘School Section’ of the application.  All applications must be received by May 1. Tuition for the five-day camp is $399 and includes room, board, supplies, recreational activity fees and a CHI T-shirt. Tuition is due when the student has been notified of CHI acceptance in mid-May. Late cancellations are subject to partial tuition being withheld. No refunds will be given after July 1. Scholarships are available.
