Pre-College Summer Programs
Pre-college summer programs for high school students are held at colleges and universities throughout the United States and overseas. Sometimes these programs focus on one area: STEM (science, technology, engineering and math); the performing and visual arts; or humanities such as history, politics or writing. They usually run for one to six weeks, depending on the program, and are available for all schedules and budgets. Pre-college programs give students a chance to experience life on a college campus, to live in a dorm, to check out a specific school and to learn some of the independence that will be required once they attend college. Some pre-college programs offer college credit and/or community service. Most also welcome day students.
