Make summer fun by suggesting that your students attend a summer precollege program!
The UW System campuses offer hundreds of programs for pre-kindergarten through high school students that are searchable through our Precollege Program Directory. Conveniently, most are offered during the summer.
Whether students want—or their parents want for them—a residential or commuter situation, or a program that’s close to home or far away, there are choices for numerous topic areas and all grade levels.
Note that some programs are free, and some have scholarships that help defray costs. Check out the DPI Precollege Scholarship Program.
