2023 Pre-College Programs

For summer 2023, we offer three two-week sessions—online and on-campus, running between late June and early August. Attend in Baltimore and you’ll enjoy a full schedule of academics, access to our extensive libraries and other facilities, plus non-academic activities designed to help you unwind and build connections with fellow classmates, instructors, and mentors. Learn online and you’ll study at your own pace—from anywhere—while engaging with a vibrant student community and taking part in exciting virtual activities. You are welcome to attend one, two, or all three sessions.

On-Campus Programs

Step into a college classroom, where you’ll learn from our exceptional instructors, with visits from top researchers and experts. Your typical day includes instructor-led morning lectures followed by afternoon outings, presentations by guest speakers, and other engaging social and educational opportunities.

Online Programs

Enjoy your Summer Programs curriculum via interactive and flexibly designed online offerings. Your self-paced program is primarily delivered asynchronously; however, your instructor may schedule live interactions as well. Your syllabus should highlight these opportunities and other important program deadlines. Expect to spend approximately 15 hours-per-week toward the completion of your program.
