Rising high school juniors and seniors take either one or two University of Pennsylvania undergraduate courses for college credit through the Pre-College Program. Students enrolling in only one credit-bearing course also take a noncredit learning skills enrichment course; students taking two credit courses pay a higher tuition rate. Curricular offerings comprise introductory courses in the arts and sciences. Students are integrated into the university's regular summer courses and are subject to the same academic standards. Weekly workshops seek to bridge the gap between high school and college. Various social activities balance academics.
