The White House said Wednesday the vacationing president will make his remarks on Sept. 14 at a time and place to be announced.
The White House says the president wants to speak directly to students as they resume their fall studies. And he wants to encourage them to "study hard, stay in school and take responsibility for their education."
Last year, the president told students in a speech from Arlington, Va., that each of them had something they were good at, and something to offer the country.
That address gained notoriety after some parents and conservative critics objected, saying Obama was making a political speech.
