You may not know exactly what you want to do yet, but you know whatever it is, it’s going to be big. When you enroll in a pre-college program at Stevens, you can explore your ideas and interests in a pressure-free, inspiring academic environment that welcomes big thinkers.

Have a Smarter Summer at Stevens.

What distinguishes our pre-college programs from others is that you get to create something from to start to finish: a business plan, a video game, an investment portfolio, a short animation. Yes, you’ll leave with a stronger college application, you’ll try out a potential major, get a taste of what campus life is really like and make some new friends. But: designing your own portfolio project with cutting-edge technology…in state-of-the-art facilities…alongside world-renowned experts, CEOs and inventors…while exploring New York City? Only at Stevens.
