Secondary School Program Overview
Every summer, more than 1,000 motivated high school students from the United States and abroad who have completed their senior, junior, or sophomore year are accepted to Harvard Summer School to experience college life. Testing out the responsibilities of college will give you the confidence to succeed as you finish your secondary school career and enter the next phase of your life—college.

Take college-level courses.
Alongside undergraduate students, you will explore subjects not available at your high school and earn college credit in college-level courses. You will work with distinguished faculty, use well-equipped labs, and study in the largest university library system in the world.

Prepare for college.
Through workshops, conferences, and other activities, you will learn more about the college application process and prepare for what lies ahead outside high school, both academically and personally.

Make new friends.
Discussing politics over dinner in Annenberg Hall, studying in Widener Library with classmates, and playing soccer or basketball are only a few of the ways you will get to know other students. They come from all areas of the United States and more than 70 countries around the world.

Experience campus life.
For many, the Secondary School Program also provides their first experience of dormitory life. You will have the independence and freedom to set your own goals for the summer, but when you need advice or help, your resident proctor will be available. You’ll also have opportunities to participate in activities such as athletics, music and theater, and SSP dances.

Learn English as a foreign language.
A special program for international students in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade focuses on developing English skills in an American college setting.
