Online Summer Program Directory

Summer programs for high school students allow teens to find opportunities to gain experience and build a resume. Teen summer educational programs are great for improving a teen’s knowledge base in a specialized area while providing the teen with a way to experience a subject that he or she may love. These educational summer programs for teens are perfect for exploring interests and choosing a future subject matter to specialize in.

College campus summer programs for teens allow high schoolers to experience living on a college campus, which can prepare them for college. Precollege summer programs for high school students are a great experience that can help the teen choose a college. Because teen precollege summer programs are typically on campus and away from home, teens gain new skills while meeting others who may be attending the same college later.
