Student Life

Tulane Pre-College creates opportunities for exceptional and curious students to explore college life in a safe and nurturing environment. Through introductions to college-level academic disciplines and the Tulane experience, high school students begin to imagine how they can pursue their academic interests in and out of the classroom and tackle real-world problems, all while taking their college applications to the next level.


Experience Tulane Pre-College


Our classes and instructors nurture curiosity, incubate ideas, and encourage young individuals to consider how they can make an impact on the human condition and the world. Tulane Pre-College provides students with an immersive, hands-on experience, access to college life and future career exploration, and a community of motivated and ambitious learners from around the globe.

Online Courses

Online courses give you the flexibility to learn using a hybrid model of coursework that is both synchronous (class time spent online with other students and instructors) and asynchronous (self-paced assignments done individually).
