“Yale Summer Session seeks motivated high school students who wish to enroll in Yale College courses for credit. In for-credit courses, qualified high school students will share the classroom with college students and will do college-level work. All participants will be held to the same set of standards.Pre-college students living on campus are required to be full-time students; they must take two course credits (the equivalent of eight semester hours) per session.  No pre-college student may take more than two courses per session. A minimum of one of these courses must be taken in residence. Pre-college students are not eligible to participate in or take any portion of a Yale Summer Session Study Abroad course.  Some courses are not open to pre-college students; please refer to the individual course descriptions for additional information.”
 
具体的申请要求则类似于小型的留学申请规模,包括在线申请、3年的学校官方中英文成绩单、2封推荐信、SAT/PSAT/ACT的考试成绩,原官方申请信息整理如下:

★Online application

03 哥伦比亚大学
 
哥伦比亚大学同时也开设了适应高中生的夏校项目,也是有带学分和不带学分的两种类型夏校可选。
 
 
具体的夏校课程方向,先修课以及申请要求学校官网有详细说明,这里不再展开细说。
 
04 斯坦福大学
 
斯坦福大学2019年的夏校项目得到12月开放申请,值得一提的是斯坦福的夏校项目除了需要学生提交成绩单,语言成绩外,还需要准备2篇ESSAYS和相关推荐人写的推荐信,可以参照:
 
 
除此之外还有芝加哥大学、麻省理工学院、杜克大学(要求托福90分以上)、宾夕法尼亚大学等名校的夏校项目陆续开放,夏校的作用和意义除了提前了解学校环境,适应留学生活、补充相关课程,积累学术知识以外,更是有提供学分的夏校项目可供选择,当然了,一般带学分的夏校项目要求更高一些(相较不带学分的项目申请而言)。
