High School Honors provides an opportunity for academically motivated rising high school juniors and seniors to experience undergraduate life, while earning college credit.
High School Honors is an exciting opportunity for high school students to study alongside Boston University undergraduates, while earning up to 8 college credits in just six weeks. The program offers more than 80 undergraduate courses in a wide range of subjects, from African American studies to writing, and everything in-between, including biology, chemistry, economics, mathematics, philosophy, and visual art. Guidance is provided to help students identify subject areas and courses that are appropriately challenging and applicable to their anticipated college major.
Outside the classroom, High School Honors students interact with a vibrant community from all over the country and world. Whether they live on campus or commute from home, students will participate in social activities both at Boston University and throughout the Boston area.
Those unable to travel to Boston this summer may also be interested in our High School Honors Online courses.
