Hi! My name is Genna, and I attended the Brandeis Precollege Race, Inequality, and Social Justice program. I am currently completing my curriculum for the International Baccalaureate program at my high school, C Leon King High School in Tampa, Florida.

Steven Le
Steven Le
App Design Alum

Hello! I'm Steven Le, and I attended the Brandeis Precollege App Design Program. Professor Hickey was an amazing teacher to have for this session; his genuine nature and caring personality was definitely the spotlight of the program for me. When I went back to school for my senior year, I even applied the web-development skills that I learned during this program to my school’s Newspaper Club. The knowledge and connections that I now have because of Precollege are so invaluable that I wish the program could have lasted much longer than just two weeks. I'm looking forward to sharing more of my App Design experiences with you!

Hi! My name is Leah, and I am a junior in high school. I attended the Brandeis Precollege Genesis program for the past two years, where I focused on courses in social entrepreneurship and world religions. I loved everything about my time at Genesis, both when I participated in person at the residential program, and when I participated in the online session. I’d love to talk with you more about my experience, and why I love this program!

Genesis Alum

Hi! My name is Ari Rosenblatt, and I am a high schooler from the San Francisco Bay Area. I am very involved in my Jewish community; which includes NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), and the RAC (Religious Action Center). This past summer, I participated in the 2020 Precollege Genesis program, and absolutely loved the entire experience - as it was transformative for me in so many ways. Overall, I'm really passionate about Jewish life and culture, and would highly recommend attending Genesis if given the opportunity. I'm happy to speak with you more and answer any questions about the Precollege programs!
