Boston University Summer Challenge Program



Summer Challenge exposes high school students to the standards of college-level work. Participants enroll in two seminars during the two-week session, one that addresses an existing interest and another that leads to the exploration of a new subject. Seminars combine lectures, individual and group work, project-based assignments and field trips. Summer Challenge schedules various social activities for afternoons, evenings and weekends.
