An authentic college experience

In this challenging honors program, students study alongside Boston University undergraduates, earning up to 8 college credits in six weeks. The High School Honors Program offers more than 90 undergraduate courses—such as economics, chemistry, and philosophy. Guidance is provided to students in identifying subject areas and courses that are appropriately challenging and applicable to future college work.

Outside the classroom, High School Honors students interact with a dynamic community from across the country and around the world. Students participate in social activities both at Boston University and throughout Boston—whether they live on-campus or commute from home.
