    Academic Summer Programs

    An academic summer program for middle or high school students can give them new skills in a subject they love or introduce them to something new and exciting. You’ll find academic and pre-college summer programs in all kinds of areas: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math); the visual and performing arts; the humanities (writing, history, politics, literature, economics and language); entrepreneurship and business; and more. Some programs offer college credit. Some are day programs; others are residential; many are both. Some are on college campuses and allow students to practice the independence and study skills they will need for college. Some combine academics such as language immersion with travel and/or community service.
