THE LATEST: Stay updated on Centenary's COVID-19 response. Learn More.

After careful consideration, the College canceled the 2020 Centenary in Paris program scheduled for August 2020. This was a very difficult decision, but there were simply too many uncertainties in our own country and in the world at large to responsibly proceed with planning for Centenary in Paris at this time. Because the College is not able to offer the Centenary in Paris program this year, each incoming Class of 2024 student will receive a bonus allotment of 2,000 Passport Points (1 Passport Point = $1 USD). Please see the Centenary in Paris Alternatives Q & A for more information. 

Please reach out to your admission counselor with any questions. 



What is Centenary in Paris?

First-year Centenary students complete their first college course during the Centenary in Paris immersive term. Using all of Paris as a classroom, it’s an intensive learning experience that will help you create strong bonds with your classmates and your professors. You’ll also earn college credit before most other students around the country even get to campus!


When is it? How will it work?

Your immersive term begins on campus and includes the 9 day Paris segment led by Centenary faculty and staff. When you deposit at Centenary, you will have the opportunity to select your Paris course based on interest.
