Stanford Comes to You!
Honors Academies provide intensive courses in multiple subject areas for students who are academically talented and passionate about learning. These advanced topics are not typically offered in traditional school settings.
Our courses feature:
- Intimate learning with small class sizes
- Typically, two-weeks in duration
- Taught by Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies instructors who are experts in their fields and enthusiastic about teaching middle and high school students. Most instructors come from the Stanford community and are Postdocs, Fellows or current graduate students.
- Course subjects are determined by student interest and instructor availabliilty and can include such topics as Creative Writing, Mathematics, Business & Entrepreneurship, and Design Thinking.
It is the collaborating organization's responsibility to promote the program to prospective students, create an application process, and enroll students.
