Summer opportunities for high school students
At UD we have many programs for high school students at various levels, with various interests. Some give students experience working in a particular field, others allow them to earn college credit, while a few cover SAT/ACT prep. In our Edge summer college program, students can earn credits taking college classes while staying on campus for a few weeks over the summer.

You can find our full list of pre-college programs here.








How many students get the chance to build an architectural portfolio, create a business plan, meet executives from collegiate and professional sport administrations, all while earning six college credits? At UM, students explore their academic passion and consider their future career opportunities when they attend the University of Miami’s Summer Scholars program. High-achieving high school sophomores and juniors can gain an authentic college experience and earn six college credits in a variety of academic areas.

For students looking to gain hands-on experience in a more condensed format, we also offer our incredible two-week, non-credit academy program for an intense experiential learning environment.
