Academic Programs

All Pre-College programs for Summer 2020 will be offered online.

Our online pre-college programs are designed to give you a preview of the UMass student experience, including college-level academics and being part of a learning community of high school students from all across the U.S. and the world. All courses are taught by UMass faculty and advanced graduate students, and combine live video instruction, independent project / group work, and check-ins with faculty and TA’s.

Our skilled Program Assistants, UMass undergraduates trained to help high school students acclimate to the college environment, will be going online, too. We will have lots of great events in the evenings that help you connect with other pre-college students.
