Summer Pre-College

Join us for Summer Pre-College 2022! Program offerings coming soon. 

Residential and online options will be available for Summer 2022.

Residential pre-college programs at UMass combine all the major elements of college, including great academics, living in a residence hall, and eating in our award-winning dining commons. Of course, it takes a little help to adjust to life on a college campus, so we have great live-in program assistants who are specially trained to help you get used to a new environment, both geographic and social. We have lots of great events in the evenings and on weekends that help you connect with other pre-college students.

Our online pre-college programs feature synchronous instruction with UMass faculty, rigorous college-level academics, and being part of a learning community of high school students from all across the U.S. and the world.
