Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies (SPCS)

NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION. Although the university has not made any broader decisions about its summer activities, SPCS has come to the difficult decision that we cannot host students on campus for programs this summer. We will continue to provide updates about summer programs and more information about Stanford's response to the developing situation here.


Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies (SPCS) fosters the development of tomorrow's undergraduates through programs that enrich the educational experience of pre-college students all year round. During the summer, SPCS has three programs with course offerings in the sciences: one for high school students seeking college credit, one for high school students seeking intensive enrichment experiences, and one for under-represented high school students with specific interests in the health sciences.

SPCS also offers a high school diploma through the Stanford Online High School, as well as online courses in math and physics through OHSx.
