High School students have a special place at Brandeis University. We've created a Precollege Online Program that enables high schoolers age 13 and up to explore subjects they may wish to pursue in college. Currently we offer: Civil Litigation, Climate Change, Global Health and Women’s Health. Each course is taught by Brandeis faculty through video lectures and supplemented by live sessions with university mentors. The program is available year-round, and the online format lets students study anywhere, anytime at their own pace.
Brandeis University has been exceptionally transparent and compassionate as it takes steps to help limit the spread of the coronavirus. All of us at Brandeis Precollege are committed to the same, and we will continue to provide updates regularly on these and any future actions. We appreciate everyone’s patience and willingness to follow the changes in operations during these uncertain times. Learn what steps Brandeis is taking to protect our community.
Take charge of your future and join the Brandeis community!
For students entering the 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade, Brandeis Precollege scholars will engage in the rigors of academics at a world-class university, and join a vibrant community of people interested and engaged in some of the most pressing issues of our time.
As a medium-sized private research university with global reach, we are dedicated to first-rate undergraduate education while making groundbreaking discoveries. Our 235-acre campus is located in Waltham, a hub for higher education and innovation. Our faculty are leaders in their fields, and as passionate about teaching and mentorship as they are about pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Our students are motivated, compassionate, curious, and open to exploring new and challenging experiences. At Brandeis, you will discover a community rooted in purpose, guided by our founding values, poised to lead in education and research in the 21st century.
While Brandeis University’s Undergraduate Admissions does not favor those who participate in Brandeis Precollege programs in its admissions decisions, it does consider all extracurricular and summertime activities in students’ applications – including academically challenging programs like our Precollege programs, paid employment, internships, volunteerism and more.
