Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies produces an array of programs for academically talented young students everywhere. Our programs are available online and in-person, during the summer and year-round, and feature broad exploration or intense study in a single subject.
The programs offer highly motivated, intellectually curious students the opportunity to investigate topics not typically taught in secondary schools. Students engage in small classes taught by instructors who are experts in their fields and passionate about teaching. In this setting, students hone their academic skills and form new friendships with intellectual peers. Students in the residential programs get a taste of college life on a beautiful Stanford campus. Past students have described their experience as life-changing.
