Harvard's Seven-Week High School Program

For reasons of health and safety, all 2021 Harvard Summer School courses and activities will be offered online, and we will not be hosting a residential program for high school students. The feedback from our 2020 virtual programs from students and faculty was overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to another exciting and successful summer online in 2021.

Experience what it's like to be a college student for seven transformative weeks. You'll get a true taste of college life as you thrive in an academically rigorous environment and engage with fellow high school and college students in and out of the classroom. 

Application for the seven-week Secondary School Program is now open! 
Join us in 2021 from June 19 to August 6​.
