Academic Programs

Tulane University understands that the world is facing some big challenges—addressing the shortage of STEM professionals, cultivating healthcare leaders of the future, and informing the next generation of talented historians, to name a few. In order to inspire the next generation to tackle these complexities, we offer exceptional students an opportunity to participate in a Tulane Pre-College program. Here, young minds can explore academic disciplines to imagine a future where they can make an impact. Tulane University’s Pre-College programs, with both credit and enrichment options, have helped inspire students each year, giving them an opportunity to build their resumes and get a taste of college life within a safe environment.
