Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Pre-College Summer Programs

For over 40 years, WPI’s pre-college summer programs have prepared high school students of all ages for the rigor, discipline, and knowledge necessary for a highly selective STEM-based undergraduate education. Our hands-on pre-college summer programs are offered in three formats, which allows students the opportunity to grow at their own pace.
