2020 Program Update: After careful and thoughtful discussion, and with the health and safety of our instructors, staff, and students in mind, we have made the decision to cancel all in-person pre-college programs for the 2020 summer. Students can still experience WashU online this summer with our Early College Scholars Program.
We are excited to announce a new addition to our pre-college programming: High School Summer Academy! Through this program, students enroll in one 3-unit course for credit taught by a distinguished WashU professor. In addition to the traditional classroom experience, students will participate in a series of research-focused sessions and off-campus field trips leading to the development of an original research project.
High School Summer Academy students live on campus in one of our top-ranked, air-conditioned residence halls. In addition to course work, students participate in specialized seminars, workshops, academic support groups, weekend outings, and evening social events.
The High School Summer Academy is offered once during the summer from June 7-27, 2020.
To be eligible for a High School Summer Academy students should:
- Be a current freshman, sophomore, or junior in high school (graduating in 2023, 2022 or 2021).
- Have an academic average of B+ (3.3/4.0) or better.
- As an international student, provide documentation of your ability to complete coursework in English (equivalent of a TOEFL score of 90).
