We look forward to returning to our residential roots next summer!

Brandeis Precollege will offer compelling programs for bright, curious teens during summer 2021, and at this time, we plan for these sessions to be residential.

Brandeis prioritizes everyone’s health and safety while still delivering outstanding academic experiences. If the pandemic forces us to offer our courses online as it did in 2020, we will update information to include program offerings and pricing.

We were fortunate to be able to provide exceptional remote experiences to hundreds of talented teens this past summer, and are confident that we will be able to again in 2021 – whether on campus or online.
