Penn's Coronavirus COVID-19 Page
As of March 12, 2020, Penn Summer Sessions are scheduled to run as planned. The situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is fluid and being monitored closely. Please check back periodically for updates. Should there be any changes to the policy that impacts our decision to hold courses this summer, we are committed to providing timely updates via email. Should any of these programs be cancelled, students will receive a full refund of program fees at that time.

Our campus task force is monitoring the situation daily and making active decisions as we receive new information. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our campus community. You can stay updated with all developments on Penn’s special coronavirus webpage.

High School Students

Penn Summer High School programs are open to high school students living in the US and across the globe. Join your peers from around the world on Penn’s campus this summer, studying and living in an Ivy League environment.

Penn Summer Academies include:

Our Pre-College Program and Young Scholars Program let you explore the liberal arts with challenging, university-level coursework and experiences while earning college credit through a transcript from the University of Pennsylvania. The Pre-College Program is a residential program while the Young Scholars Program is designed for commuter students from the Philadelphia area.

The Penn Summer Prep Program offers non-credit college-level academics. Students enroll in two immersive modules from across disciplines, benefit from the rich educational resources of the university, experience college life on Penn’s historic campus and explore the vibrant city of Philadelphia.

Programs offered by other schools and departments at Penn allow you to explore subjects and materials in depth from some of the world’s leading scholars.
