A Summer Academic Program for High School Students
The Emory Pre-College Program is a summer academic program for high school students. It gives college-bound rising juniors and rising seniors an exciting glimpse of academic and residential life at a top-ranked national university. High school students may explore topics with professors who are the leading experts in their fields, enroll in classes with college students, and earn transferable college credit. Two-week noncredit courses and three-week noncredit institutes are available. Students wishing to earn credit alongside Emory undergraduates will enroll in a six-week course through the Emory Summer College for High School Students. Emory Pre-College students enrolled in non-credit courses live together in a residence hall on campus or within commuting distance with their families and participate in a variety of programs, activities, and excursions designed to prepare them for college life.
Students will enjoy the beautiful, tree-lined Emory campus and its outstanding facilities, meet new people and make lifelong friends. Students come from all across the U.S. and the world. Ranked #20 by U.S. News and World Report and #14 by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance for best values among private universities, Emory University offers a small liberal arts college environment within a major research university.
