At the University of Rochester, students design their own educational plans, studying only what they want to study and doing what they love, driven by their interests. The University’s pre-college academic enrichment programs extend this same experience to younger students.
So what exactly does that kind of freedom look like? Pre-College Programs make it possible for junior high and high school students to explore the University and its resources through both credit and noncredit courses. The many options available include taking a one-week course, living on campus for a month, completing a college class for credit, and participating in a summer study-abroad seminar.
Rochester is proud to welcome students from across the country and around the globe to participate in these innovative programs, which have been enlightening young minds for over 20 years. Classes are designed to broaden the educational experience and sharpen academic skills, helping students learn more about who—not just what—they want to be.
