A 2-week program
It’s called Summer Challenge because it pushes you in so many ways. You will explore your interests, discover new ones, test your academic boundaries, and immerse yourself in the college experience. Along the way, you will make new friends and get to know more about Boston University. Are you up to the challenge?

A summer to remember
If you’re a rising high school sophomore, junior, or senior, you’re in for two unforgettable weeks. Get ready to take on new academic challenges as a remote student in this exceptional summer program.
Choose any two seminars from our extensive list. Each is designed to expand your academic horizons through lectures, discussions, individual and group work, project-based assignments—even virtual field trips. Small class sizes give you the opportunity to receive individual attention from our experienced team of college instructors.
As part of our program, we also offer an admissions workshop that will give you valuable insight into the college application process.
The big picture
In our Summer Challenge program, you’ll be part of a close-knit social community of high school students diving into new subjects and ideas. Every day, there are remote activities that give you a chance to make new friends, learn more about yourself, and get to know Boston University.
Summer Challenge is open to rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
