Summer students enroll in undergrad courses, earn college credits, and live in a student dormitory to gain an inside perspective on college life.
Stanford’s High School Summer College is an academically selective program that provides access to undergraduate education at one of America’s most respected universities. Summer College is not a camp, but an eight-week college experience that provides academic, social, and intellectual opportunities not found in a high school classroom. Program participants build a schedule comprised of challenging college-level courses, and credit earned is documented on a Stanford University transcript. Stanford credit may be transferable to other educational institutions depending on the transfer policies of the specific college or university. High School Summer College students interact with peers from across the U.S. and around the world, and have ample opportunity to explore the unique recreational activities available on campus and in the culturally rich San Francisco Bay Area. The program’s diverse and interesting academic and extracurricular offerings provide many occasions for personal growth, enjoyment, and the opportunity to develop memorable friendships. We encourage interested students to apply for Summer 2013!
High School Summer College students have three options for attendance:
- Residential Option: Students from anywhere within the U.S. or abroad who will live on the Stanford Campus as part of an organized residential community.
- Commuting Option: Students who live near enough to Campus to commute to class or can arrange to stay with family or family friends for the duration of the Summer Quarter.
- Stanford Horizon Scholars Program: Up to fifteen low-income, high-achieving, local-area high school students will have the opportunity to attend Stanford Summer Session’s High School Summer Session as commuting students at little to no cost.
