High School Honors provides an opportunity for motivated rising high school seniors and exceptional juniors to experience undergraduate life, both socially and academically, while earning college credits. They earn up to eight BU credits by enrolling in up to two summer courses.

|Additional Information||Over six weeks, students enroll in two summer academic courses of their choice, attending classes alongside Boston University undergraduates and earning up to eight credits. The High School Honors Program offers more than 100 undergraduate courses in dozens of exciting subjects not typically available in high school classrooms—such as medical anthropology, buddhism, or the history of photography. Students receive guidance when selecting courses to help identify subject areas that will provide an appropriate challenge while also earning credits that are applicable to future college work.
Outside of class, High School Honors students enjoy a vibrant community of peers on campus as they participate in group activities and explore the city of Boston—whether they live on-campus or choose to commute from home.
