Overview

The Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes is a three-week residential programs for academically talented and motivated high school students. The Summer Institutes provide an opportunity for these students to enrich and accelerate their academic pursuits during summer.

Summer Institutes participants live in supervised Stanford housing, and are taught by instructors who are experts in their fields and passionate about teaching. Students engage in intensive study in a single course and are introduced to topics not typically presented at the high school level. The Summer Institutes provide a taste of college life in the beautiful surroundings of the Stanford University campus.

Summer Institutes subject areas include:

  • arts and humanities
  • business
  • computer science
  • engineering
  • legal studies
  • mathematics
  • social science
  • physical and biological science
  • writing

The instructors are assisted by undergraduate and graduate student mentors who have expertise in the course subject areas. These mentors serve a dual role of Residential Counselor and Teaching Assistant so that the academic and social aspects of the program are tightly integrated.

The Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes integrate academics and social activities into every aspect of the program. Students are encouraged to have fun while learning, and to learn while having fun. Peers and mentors from around the world, first-rate instructional and residential staff, and the beautiful Stanford campus create a truly special experience. As the program reaches its conclusion, students wish it would never end, and later reflect on the experience as one of the best they have ever had.

2018 Session Dates:
