High School Honors

Schedule of Social Events

Group outings to Faneuil Hall and Newbury Street, movie and game nights in the dorm, basketball at FitRec, or ultimate frisbee on the Boston Common - these are just a few examples of the activities that the high school students might participate in as part of the High School Honors Program. Program events help orient you to the city of Boston and help you get to know the other students in the program, building a strong social community. And they're fun! Take a look at the schedule of events from last summer - it will give you an idea of how you can spend your time when you are here.

High School Honors students join with RISE students for all activities. Optional and impromptu events planned by the Program Assistants and staff also take place throughout the summer.
