Stanford University High School Summer College


This precollege program allows accomplished boys and girls who have completed grades 11 or 12 (or, in the case of particularly mature students, grade 10) to sample college life while taking undergraduate courses and earning Stanford University credit. Residential pupils register for at least eight units of course work during the eight-week session, commuters at least three units. In addition to the varied selection of college courses, boys and girls may participate in voluntary classes and seminars designed to prepare them for a successful transition to college; options address the college admission process, study skills and time management, and expository writing, among others. Field trips, intramural athletics, outreach projects, coastal excursions and informal discussions with Stanford faculty complement class work.
