Applications for summer 2023 are now closed.
Penn SAS High School Programs is transitioning to a new online application system. Applications for summer 2024 are scheduled to open later this year. Please sign up for email communications from the program team so we can let you know when applications open.
Academies are subject-intensive three-week programs that fuse sophisticated scientific or social theory with relevant applications. The science academies draw upon Penn's cutting-edge technology and resources to provide innovative lab experiences while the social academies draw upon the rich history and diversity of Philadelphia to provide a sociologically comprehensive summer experience. Academies are led by University of Pennsylvania faculty and long-standing professionals in their field of study with support from graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants.
