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.
Students may choose from one of the following summer programs:
- High School Summer Scholars
- Credit, residential program for 10th and 11th grade
- Course options include humanities, math, sciences, and social sciences
- High School Summer Institutes
- Noncredit, residential programs for 9th, 10th, and 11th grade

- Commuter program for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade
- Arts/humanities and STEM courses combined with leadership and team building activities
- Early College Scholars Program
- Commuter and online program
- Noncredit and for credit course options available.

This is a question we often hear from parents and students. There are many reasons a pre-college program at WashU stands apart from other universities:
- Development of college readiness skills
- Dedicated one-on-one support
- Exceptional residential experience
- Commitment to academic success
- Clear community expectations and guidelines
