Find the Program That's Right For You

Summer pre-college programs at Loyola Marymount University are an engaging opportunity for motivated high school students to get a sneak peek at college through a unique experience designed to challenge their critical and creative ways of thinking.

These courses are so much more than summer school. These transformative summer experiences provide students with the opportunity to explore academic passions, evolve as individuals, and discover what it means to have the heart of an LMU Lion.

Discovery. Passion. Purpose.

"I was able to meet and live with people who had the same passions as I did and we pushed each other to do better. We bounced ideas off each other, corrected each other's work, made memories, and formed bonds I will never forget. I still talk to most of them today."

-Sara Lighthart, Summer 2018 and Summer 2019
