Every year approximately 1,000 high school students who have completed their senior, junior, or sophomore year spend eight summer weeks at Harvard University.  They find the Secondary School Program (SSP) an exciting and rewarding Ivy League experience. 

At Harvard, college-bound students prepare for the college-admissions process and for college itself.  Living and learning with students from all areas of the United States and more than 90 countries around the world, SSP students take courses along with undergraduates and earn college credit.  They choose from nearly 200 Harvard Summer School courses, explore academic subjects not available in high school, work with a distinguished faculty, use well-equipped labs, and do research in the largest university library system in the world. 

Featured in 2006 is the College Preparatory program, which includes a large College Fair, visits to New England colleges, and study-skills workshops.  Also featured are the Math Program, the Drama Program, and the Writing Program, which offers a wide array of writing classes as well as readings by visiting authors. 

Located on the Charles River in historic Cambridge, Massachusetts, Harvard University provides a dynamic environment in which to preview college life.
