College Courses for commuting High School Students
Make the most of your summer as you prepare for college.
Brandeis Summer School offers the perfect opportunity for advanced high school students to experience college courses on a commuting basis. Test your readiness for college, explore subjects that are not available in your high school, and earn college credit.
Drawn from the regular Brandeis curriculum, courses are often taught by the same instructors who teach them during the academic year. You'll be in small classes of approximately 10 students with undergraduates from Brandeis and other colleges and universities across the country.
We invite applications from students who anticipate receiving a high school diploma in 2014 or 2015.
High school students may take Summer School courses on a commuting basis only. Campus housing is not available for current high school students taking college classes.
Other Summer Programs for High School Students
In addition to the College Courses open to High School Students, Brandeis University is also proud to offer several residential summer programs for high school students:
