The Pre-College Program is designed for rising juniors and seniors interested in the intellectual challenge and rigorous pace of a true undergraduate experience.
Penn Summer Academies are academically rigorous, subject intensive programs which fuse traditional classroom instruction with experiential learning opportunities. Academies meet Monday through Friday, roughly 9am to 4pm, and include morning lectures and discussion groups complemented by guided laboratory research or relevant field trips. All programs are overseen and taught by Penn faculty or staff, ensuring students are met with a challenging Ivy League curriculum. Programs conclude with a capstone project designed to hone skills learned throughout the academy.
