Pre-College Summer Programs for high school students will be offered exclusively through online instruction in summer 2021.

Students who participated last summer enjoyed a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities that enhanced their academic studies. Whether competing for first place in our virtual “House Competition,” receiving daily 1-on-1 and group support from current LMU undergraduates, or dropping into nightly social activities with peers – students felt that one aspect of summer they loved most was the sense of community they built during their time online with LMU.

As always, we are committed to providing you with an engaging and enriching academic experience and look forward to welcoming you to our online community of scholars this summer.
