Program Overview:
The Emory Pre-College Program offers students an opportunity to preview the best of college life: from compelling courses taught by renowned faculty to life on a vibrant campus, from becoming an active participant in the university, local, and global communities to
developing friendships with other students from around the world. Emory Pre-College students will experience a challenging college-level
academic course, but they will also gain exposure to other academic disciplines, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, and residential
college life.

All Pre-College students will participate in College 101 afternoon sessions designed to help high school students prepare for their college
experience. Coupled with their academic work, College 101 programs will help equip students to understand and prioritize what to look for
in a college and to hit the ground running when they do arrive at their college of choice.
Beyond these components of the Emory Pre-College experience, students will also have the opportunity to explore Atlanta and the attractions the city has to offer and to enjoy dorm life and extra-curricular activities organized by the Residence Life staff.

This summer we expect to have about 150 Pre-College students on the Emory campus. Those students will be spread over three two week sessions, so there will be about 50 students enrolled in the Pre-College Program at any given time. The relatively small size of our
program ensures that students receive personal attention from both their professors and the residence life staff and that they get to know most of the other pre-college students. Around 90% of the students enrolled in two-week courses are residential and will live on campus in Turman Hall.

Program Offering:
The Emory Pre-College Program offers a diverse selection of two-week non-credit courses in a variety of disciplines. Students will experience college-level academics in a small class setting with some of Emory's leading experts in their respective fields and will receive
written feedback on their work at the end of the course. Pre-College students will also receive a grade of Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory and a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the program.

All non-credit courses meet from 9:00-11:30am daily and may have additional requirements (excursions, film viewings, etc.) in the
afternoons or evenings. In addition to their coursework, each Pre-College student will participate in College 101 sessions which are held in
the afternoons. Students may only register for one Pre-College course per two-week session, but we do welcome students to enroll in multiple courses in consecutive sessions.
