A Summer of Possibilities

Tulane University understands that the world is facing some big challenges. To inspire the next generation to think, learn, act, and lead, we are offering students an opportunity to participate in the Tulane Pre-College programs this summer. Tulane Pre-College offers middle and high school students the opportunity to explore their artistic, intellectual, and professional passions while experiencing college life. With both credit and enrichment options, our different 1, 2, and 3-week programs reflect the richness and diversity of the areas of study at Tulane University. Young minds can explore academic disciplines, build their resumes and imagine a future where they can make an impact.
