BC summer programs for high school students?

Hi all! Does anyone have recommendations for summer programs or opportunities at Boston College for high school students? I'm open to exploring any field or subjects they offer. Thank you!

7 months ago

Hi there! Boston College offers several summer programs and opportunities for high school students in various subject areas. Some of the programs to consider include:

1. BC Splash: A one-day event held at Boston College where high school students can attend classes taught by BC students on various subjects, ranging from philosophy to biology and beyond. While not a summer program, it provides a chance to experience the BC atmosphere and explore different topics.

2. BC Ever to Excel Program: A weeklong program aimed at high school students interested in leadership, faith, and community service. Participants engage in workshops, group activities, and discussions to develop leadership skills and self-awareness.

3. Pre-college Summer Experience: Although not hosted by Boston College, some organizations offer pre-college summer programs on the BC campus where high school students can take courses on subjects like entrepreneurship, law, or psychology from BC professors or other college experts. A quick search online should yield some results on programs available on campus.

Additionally, you can also explore summer programs and workshops at other prestigious universities in the Boston area like Harvard, MIT, and Tufts, as these programs generally offer a wide range of topics catering to high school students' interests.

Lastly, be sure to keep an eye on the official websites of Boston College and other institutions for announcements and updates on available summer programs for high school students as offerings may change annually and could be impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Good luck, and I hope you find a great summer opportunity!
