At the Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes program high school students engage in intensive, single-subject courses with instructors and peers who share their talents, passions, and interests. With nearly 60 courses to choose from students will find course options in a wide variety of subjects, including arts, bioscience, business, creative writing, engineering, social science, and more.
At the Summer Humanities Institute rising high school juniors and seniors explore the big questions at the heart of the humanities in seminars led by distinguished Stanford professors. Students spend the first two weeks intensively studying and researching a topic in history, philosophy, or literature, attending daily lectures by the faculty members, and participating in group discussions. During their third week, students work closely with their professors, graduate students, and writing mentors to produce original research projects.
