Do HBCUs have unique summer programs for high schoolers?

Hi folks! I've been looking into summer programs to help boost my college apps and really want to experience life at an HBCU. Does anyone know if there are any specific summer programs at HBCUs for high school students? Bonus points if they're aimed at specific subjects or college prep!

Hello there! It's wonderful that you're interested in experiencing life at an HBCU during the summer. Many HBCUs offer summer programs for high school students. These can range from subjects like STEM, business, the arts, and more. For example, Spelman College has a pre-college program that's quite popular. Additionally, Howard University runs the Howard University Pre-College Summer Enrichment Programs for students looking to get ahead and deepen their knowledge in specific subject areas.

To find the best fit for you, I suggest visiting the websites of different HBCUs you're interested in and checking their 'Pre-College' or 'Continuing Education' sections for high school programs. Don't forget to also look at the application deadlines and requirements. These programs can be a fantastic way to strengthen your college application, as they show your initiative and eagerness to learn. Good luck, and I hope you find a summer program that inspires you!
