Smith Precollege Programs

Experience precollege programs that offer limitless ways to explore the world. You will join more than 200 other high school girls who want to pursue their academic interests in and out of the classroom, strengthen their college applications and meet other motivated and ambitious college-bound young women.

Designed by Smith's professors and staff, the program not only gives you an inspiring learning experience, you also earn a recommendation from Smith faculty to use in your college applications. Inside the classroom, a hands-on, collaborative learning environment lets you directly engage with world-class scholars who help you pursue your passions and develop new skills. Outside the classroom, enjoy Smith's beautiful setting, live in a house on campus, make new friends and have a great time joining in on lots of fun activities.
