    A pre-college program at Bentley University provides rising high school juniors and seniors with a taste of college academics and offers a chance to experience residential life. The programs allow students to build essential skills, expand their networks, and enhance their college applications, setting them on a path toward future success. Bentley offers three pre-college programs: Wall Street 101, Analytics Academy and Business of Health Innovation.

    Analytics Academy

    Explore the power of data and learn ideas and perspectives involved in data sciences, hear from guest speakers and complete a capstone project where you’ll put your new skills into action. The program aims to introduce high school students to data science, with an emphasis on creating a fun and positive experience. Through engaging with guest speakers and hands-on learning, students can develop practical skills and knowledge while working on a capstone project, allowing them to apply their newfound abilities in a real-world setting. 

    Business of Health Innovation

    Technologies make people and populations better from medical devices, biotechnology, digital health, design, and more. Students will learn about the business of health, the wellness industry, health behaviors at an individual level, and how sustainable products can optimize health for people and the planet. The week-long summer program showcases a cutting-edge curriculum centered around innovative technologies that revolutionize health, ranging from medical devices to digital health solutions and biotechnology. The program uniquely integrates business aspects of the health industry, with an emphasis on Boston's robust life sciences industry, offering students an unparalleled opportunity to explore the dynamic health ecosystem in one of the nation's health industry hubs. 

    Wall Street 101

    There is an unprecedented increase in financial market volatility as investors react to the constant flow of news on economics, politics, healthcare, and finance.  Through simulated securities trading and valuation exercises,  industry analysis, portfolio construction, and engagement with senior-level executives from the financial services industry, students are introduced to the dynamic world of global finance and investing. Our instructors, with deep academic and industry experience, will help you develop insights on valuation and risk management to become a rational investor.  In addition, Wall Street 101 participants will connect with like-minded fellow high school students from across the globe, providing opportunities to gain strong global perspectives and life-long friends.
