The Top Summer Programs for High School Students

If you want to get a jumpstart on your college experience, there are plenty of programs offered by universities during the summer for high school students who are trying to make a name for themselves early in the process. Here are some of the top summer programs.

Cornell University’s Summer College

Some Cornell University summer programs are available to students as early as their sophomore year. There are many more three to six-week classes for juniors and seniors who want to get a head start. These classes offer college credit and while some are on-campus others are available online.

George Washington University’s Precollege Programs

George Washington University offers precollege courses that provide college credit as well as summer immersion programs that help transition students from high school to university life. High school sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply and admitted students can take advantage of these programs between graduation and their first semester.

Harvard Summer School

Harvard University offers summer programs to students graduating in the next three years. These are advanced and intensive seven-week courses that can be taken either onsite or online. If you want the Harvard experience while still in high school, this is your chance to get it.
