Brown Summer Programs

Brown University has a two hundred and fifty-year history of challenging students to think critically, expand their horizons, and find the academic path that leads people to become leaders, scholars, and explorers.

Brown's Pre-College summer program is specially designed to expand that tradition to exceptional high school students who desire to challenge themselves both intellectually and emotionally.  Our summer classes for high school students and our approach to learning are unique.  We have designed our summer program to allow high school students to grow as people and as learners while exploring academic and career paths that may not currently be available to them.

Go inside an operating room, side by side with world class physicians and researchers.  Learn what it takes to become - and succeed - as an attorney.  Get the jump on college-level mathematics.  Immerse yourself in Shakespeare with Ivy League literature scholars.  Analyze your own DNA.  Or learn to be persuasive, either on the stage or off.  Explore career paths, explore yourself, or get ahead in your studies.  Brown's pre-college courses will make you think, make you sweat and make you grow.

But Brown's Pre-College summer program is more than classrooms and laboratories.  It's about the true college experience: residential, social and academic.  Pre-college students live in our dorms, work with our faculty, and find out what life in the Ivy League is really like.

You'll have a genuine college campus experience - with the added fun of summer in Providence, Rhode Island.  At Brown, you can swim off a white sand beach, explore New England history from the 1600s, and enjoy a thriving downtown environment - all in one day.

The true benefits of the college summer programs at Brown come from participating in the myriad opportunities we offer.  Summer@Brown students live in a college residence hall with plenty of opportunities to interact with fellow students from all over the world.  Your academic classroom experience combined with the social and educational activities outside of the classroom will provide you with a tremendous opportunity to have a satisfying college experience and to establish rewarding friendships you will grow from and cherish.  By the end of your summer program, we are confident you will be academically and socially ready to take the next big step on your academic journey to a quality college campus.

In addition, Summer@Brown fills each day with a full list of extra-curricular activites, from sports and trips to internationally recognized guest lecturers.  Here are just a few of the activities you might find at Brown on a summer day:

• Pick-up soccer games on the green, trips to minor league baseball games, volleyball tournaments, bowling trips

• Movies, pizza parties in the dorms, parties in the “Bear's Lair”, ice cream socials

• Ballroom dancing, poetry slams, talent shows, dances, trips to museums, public concerts, Shakespeare performances, and Providence's famous Waterfire festival

• Trips to Boston, Newport, Mystic Seaport, area beaches, and a host of other beautiful places

• The Annual Brown University Summer College Fair with representatives from more than 100 colleges on campus, lectures from world-renowned guest lecturers, workshops on the admissions process.

College Success Series

The core of the Summer@Brown experience is learning the skills you need to succeed in the college environment.  With that goal in mind, Brown has developed the College Success Series, a series of lectures and workshops designed to help students network, learn about their choices, and better understand the admissions process at selective colleges from all over the United States.  The College Success Series is a unique benefit of attending the Pre-College Summer Program.  As a Pre-College Summer student, you will be able to:

• Get first-hand information from Brown admissions officers regarding Brown and the admissions process

• Network with representatives from over 100 colleges and universities during the annual Summer College Fair

• Attend workshops like College Study Skills, How to Write a College Application, & How to Write an Application Essay

• Meet one-on-one with representatives from select colleges around the country
