Program Overview:
Brown's Pre-College summer program is specially designed to let high school students experience all the facets of a true residential
college program at one of America's most competitive universities. Each summer, thousands of students from around the world come to
Brown to build a diverse, engaging community and a vibrant campus.

Academics are the core of the program. They offer over 250 courses in science, medicine, arts, theatre, social science, literature, music and more. Their courses are carefully crafted from Brown's existing
curriculum or specially developed for the summer. But Brown's Pre-College summer program is more than classrooms and laboratories.
It's about the true college experience: residential, social and academic. Pre-college students live in our dorms, work with our faculty, and
find out what life in the Ivy League is really like.

Program Offering:
Pre-College courses are our most popular offerings - High school students who have completed at least the 9th grade explore favorite
subjects, experience college life, and advance their studies without the pressure of grades.
Pre-College courses show you what it means to be completely absorbed in the learning process at an Ivy League University. As part of
your learning, you will do things you may only have dreamed of - shadow a physician, hone your writing skills, map the stars, seek answers
to human behavior, examine international affairs, or analyze your own DNA.
All courses meet Monday through Friday in the morning or afternoon for a minimum of 3 hours per day. You will have daily assignments,
group work, and opportunities to meet with your instructor. Many courses feature site visits, labs, and hands-on projects, all of which
broaden Summer@Brown learning experiences.
Leadership Institute
The Leadership Institute is designed for highly motivated and intellectually curious students who are interested in complex social issues.

We look for young people who are excited to learn and want to make a positive difference in the world. Students develop knowledge and
understanding of complex issues through case studies, lectures, films, simulations, discussions, field research and group projects. Your
learning is stimulated by creative curricula, engaging faculty and peers from around the world. Last year we had students from 25 different
countries and from around the U.S. Such diversity is key to our understanding of global challenges.

Sample Schedule / Life on Campus / Extra Opportunities:
Outside of class, you will make friends, attend events and social activities on campus, and have time for summer fun. Preparing for college
continues with Summer@Brown’s extensive Co-Curricular activity calendar – Workshops and presentations designed specifically to help
you succeed with your college applications, and better prepare you for the transition to college-level academics.
