Jumpstart Your Future with Pre-College Summer Programs

Are you going to be a junior or senior in high school? If so, consider spending the summer in one of our six distinct Pre-College programs, from June 27-August 8. You can either explore architecture, art & design, drama, music or the National High School Game Academy to prepare yourself for study at the college level. Through our Advanced Placement/Early Admission program, you can take two challenging college courses in order to gain advanced placement and get a head start in college when you visit Carnegie Mellon.

Our Pre-College programs will show you what life at Carnegie Mellon is all about – from in the classroom to what’s happening on weekends. You’ll meet people from all over the world, be inspired by our world-renowned faculty, take part in the excitement of campus life and have the opportunity to explore the city of Pittsburgh.

To get a better idea of what Pre-College is all about, check out our media page, featuring students and professors from past summers and “like” us on Facebook.
