Cottey’s Summer Workshop offers rising high school junior and senior-aged girls insight into leadership, skill building, and college and career preparation.

Workshoppers will get to explore everything Cottey has to offer for their future education and gain experience working with Cottey professors and distinguished alumnae as they lead sessions on topics ranging from leadership to business.

Because the Workshop is designed to give insight into college life and offer direction for career building, each participant will earn a $3,000 annual scholarship to Cottey College.

Show Me Cottey is a special event for local area high schools within the 75 mile radius of Nevada, MO. High School counselors can contact us to arrange a visit day for their high school young ladies to visit our campus. The day’s festivities would include a campus tour, admission and financial aid meeting, and lunch in our Raney Dining Room. We will provide transportation to and from your school, chartering you around in our snazzy Cottey bus, at no expense to you. It is a great opportunity for students, counselors, and teachers to experience a college campus in a quick day-trip fashion. For more information please contact the Enrollment Office at 417-448-1490 or
