Students studying on the green.

Brown Pre-College Programs are designed for high school students to explore the challenges and opportunities of the college experience. You’ll enjoy the excitement and responsibility that comes from balancing challenging academics and enriching social activities—without the pressure of formal grades.

In one of our 1- to 6-week courses, you’ll get to know the best of Brown: We’re an Ivy known for our embrace of independent thinkers—one that values and respects student voices.

You’ll experience the rigors of college-level classes as you study alongside peers from around the world who are as motivated and curious as you are.

Join the Brown community to get a feel for what college life is like—the choices, the challenges, and the new friendships. Leave enriched by an unforgettable experience, prepared for your next steps.

“ I now have a better understanding of what college will be like. I’m more excited and comfortable. ”
