Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies

Exciting Summer Opportunities for Your Students at Stanford


Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies participants on campus.


As a high school college counselor, you are a critical resource to your students as they look to their future. We hope that you will look over our program information and discuss the benefits of attending a Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies summer program with your top students as they make plans for Summer 2018. Please direct students to our website to learn more about our diverse program offerings.



We offer programs across a wide variety of disciplines including arts, humanities, science, and math, giving highly motivated students the opportunity to investigate advanced topics not typically taught in secondary schools. Participants engage in small classes with brilliant instructors and peers who share their passions.

Deadlines for our summer programs are in February, with some early round deadlines in January. Admission is selective. Limited financial aid is available.

  • Stanford Summer Arts Institute students in grades 9–11 come together for a three-week intensive interdisciplinary arts program offering academically rigorous, hands-on courses in art, visual design, and music.
  • Stanford Summer Humanities Institute students in grades 10 and 11 explore the big questions at the heart of the humanities in seminars led by distinguished Stanford professors during this three-week residential program.
  • Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes allows students in grades 8–11 to engage in single-subject intensive study selected from a wide range of disciplines, and benefit from small class size and academically themed residences.
  • Stanford AI4ALL, formerly SAILORS, invites young women in grade 9 to apply to this three-week residential summer program. Participants learn about topics in AI, partake in ongoing research at Stanford, and receive mentorship from professors, graduate students, and industry professionals.
  • Stanford University Mathematics Camp (SUMaC) students participate in a highly-selective program centered around lectures, guided research, and group problem solving in advanced math topics. This four-week program is intended for an elite group of talented students in grades 10 and 11.
  • Stanford Pre-Collegiate University-Level Online Math and Physics offers 13 courses throughout the year, including a summer term for high school students, grades 9–12. Students earn Stanford University Continuing Studies credit.

Update on LOSFA Student Hub

posted Nov 1, 2017, 11:48 AM by Kesha Simmons   [ updated Nov 1, 2017, 2:15 PM ]

Attention Freshman and Sophomore Parents:

Registration for LOSFA Student Hub will begin the sophomore year of high school.   During Parent Night, parents of freshmen were also encouraged to set up an account.  However, we recently learned that students need to have transcript records in STS (Student Transcript System) along with a LASECID (Louisiana Secure ID) in order to register for a Student Hub account.  Transcript records are uploaded in STS at the end of each semester of high school.  In light of this new information, we recommend waiting until the sophomore year to create a LOSFA Student Portal Account and begin tracking TOPS eligibility.  This will allow for a full year of academics to be reviewed on the TOPS Report.

This week, sophomores will receive their Louisiana Secure ID in their homeroom classes and are advised to register on LOSFA Student Hub.   

Thanks for your patience as we work through this process.

Ms. Simmons
