College and Career

MORE SUMMER PROGRAMMING OPPORTUNITIES


Mar. 5

BOSTON UNIVERSITY:
I have exciting information to share with your students about Boston University’s Summer Challenge pre-college program. In Summer Challenge, students entering their 10th, 11th, or 12thgrades study two rigorous subjects selected from more than twenty options, while gaining exposure to college life and meeting peers from around the world.

Summer Challenge students explore their interests and discover new ones, testing their academic boundaries as they immerse themselves in the college experience. Along the way, they make new friends and get to know more about Boston University.

In summer 2021, all BU pre-college programs will be offered entirely via remote learning—students from any country can attend without needing to travel to the United States.
We welcome international students, and to accommodate participants from a variety of time zones in our synchronous programming we are offering a special session of Summer Challenge for summer 2021.

The Summer Challenge 2a: Evening session meets from 5 to 10 pm EDT (local Boston time), which reflects a more accessible block of time for many international students.
To learn more about this special offering for international students, including what seminars we offer and how to apply, please visit bu.edu/summer/high-school-programs/summer-challenge.

You are welcome to contact us via email at summerhs@bu.edu with any questions about our programs.
