Student Life

The Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes integrate academics and social activities into every aspect of the program. Students are encouraged to have fun while learning, and to learn while having fun. Peers and mentors from around the world, first-rate instructional and residential staff, and the beautiful Stanford University campus create a truly special experience. As the program reaches its conclusion, students wish it would never end, and later reflect on the experience as one of the best they have ever had, and a summer they will always remember.

I really loved my experience at the Summer Institutes. I made a lot of friends from all over the world, I learned so many new things, and my world was opened up. I loved every single moment here, and I will never forget it.
