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, three-week noncredit institutes and six-week credit courses are available.  Emory Pre-College students 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.
