An authentic college experience
During this six-week summer program, students are enrolled in two academic courses of their choice, studying alongside Boston University undergraduates and earning up to eight college credits. The High School Honors Program offers more than 100 undergraduate courses in a range of exciting subjects not typically available in high school classrooms—such as cultural anthropology, architecture, and economics. Students receive guidance in identifying subject areas and courses that are appropriately challenging and applicable to future college work.
Outside of class, High School Honors students interact with a vibrant community of peers from all over the United States and the world, participating in workshops and planned social activities on campus and throughout the city of Boston—whether they live on-campus or choose to commute from home.See a sample schedule of activities »
