Qualified high school students can have the opportunity to take undergraduate level courses during the summer at Johns Hopkins University.

The Johns Hopkins Summer Term Program offers high school students the opportunity to take freshman and sophomore JHU credit classes in arts and sciences and engineering with many of the same faculty that would teach the course during fall and spring terms.
