Yale University invites high school students aged 13 to 18 to apply to spend the summer at the International Summer School program. This program engages students from over seventy countries in learning, creative, and exciting extracurricular opportunities on the scenic Yale Campus.
This three-week program engages students from all over the world, blending native and non-English students alike. In fact, participation is limited to one nationality representing no more than ten percent of the program population in order to guarantee a truly international experience.
Academic and elective subject courses are taught by qualified professionals, allowing students to benefit from cultural trips, workshops, and other activities. Students are supervised by well-trained summer school counselors who help to facilitate all activities at Yale.
The program is offered in two distinct sessions, with the first running from July 15th to August 5th. Students will stay in traditional dormitory setting, usually one that is centrally located so that students can enjoy all the features the historic, architecturally-renowned campus has to offer.
While attending the summer program at Yale, students will choose one academic and one elective to follow for the three week program. These classes meet daily for three hours and all are exceptionally small, providing for the most individualized attention. Available academic courses include debate, English language, pre-IB, IB extended essay, business and entrepreneurship, youth leadership, creative writing, and journalism.
These courses are combined with hands-on afternoon learning experiences, allowing them to engage in cultural trips and other experiences. Elective experiences include golf, tennis, film, outdoor leadership, theatre, photography, art, and fencing. After courses and electives have ended for the day, students may partake in evening entertainment, highland games, day trips, and other options.
