Secondary School Program
A college program at Harvard for high school students
Wondering what college is like? Experience it yourself this summer in Harvard’s Secondary School Program.
Take real Harvard courses
Alongside college and adult students, you can earn college credit in Harvard courses and explore subjects not available at your high school. You study with distinguished faculty, use state-of-the-art labs, and have access to the largest university library system in the world.
Meet people from around the world and prepare for college
By living on campus or participating in intramural sports, a trivia bowl, dances, and other social activities, you can make friends from all over the globe. You can also attend college prep workshops, a college fair, and talks by Harvard students and Harvard admissions staff.
Learn more in Activities and College Prep.
