Experience life in college in this accelerated two week program, where you can explore your interests via two focused academic seminars. An abbreviated version of our popular 6-week Tufts College Experience. This program is designed to provide students with a taste of the Undergraduate experience, allowing highly motivated students to engage in their own academic interests and mix college-level study with fun activities and the opportunity to build college and life skills. Balancing the engaging academic seminars, most taught by Tufts faculty or graduate students, with expert-led workshops and social activities, the Tufts Summer Accelerator can help students prepare for college both academically and socially.
Students enroll in 2 college-level seminars per 2-week session, designed specifically for high school students, and gain experience with the excitement, freedom, and challenge of academics at a top-tier higher education institution. Students may enroll in 1 or 2 two-week sessions (sessions run in consecutive two-week spans).
Eligible Students: Entering grades 10-12 or a Spring 2022 graduate.
