Here Are 5 Open Summer Programs for Teens

We’ve rounded up some exciting opportunities for high school students who are still looking for opportunities for this summer. There are a variety of online and residential options that are sure to help  students grow and develop new perspectives. 

1. The Summer Scholars Program is hosted by American University and offers college-credit courses on 13 topics including Data Science, Global Public Health, Oceanography, Sustainable Development and Design, and more. Students will have the chance to stretch their imaginations and pick a fun niche to study. Online and asynchronous.


2. Studying at Tufts this summer provides endless options for learning, honing new skills, and stretching a student’s imagination. The SMFA Graphic Design Bootcamp is ideal to teach students how to use  Adobe Creative Cloud software to create their own designs, Mini Med School: Clinical Experiences provides students an intensive view into case studies, the Diagnostic Lab, and a chance to ask questions of medical doctors. There are other available course options, too.


3. The Boston Globe invites teenagers to submit writing  up to 700 words. If students want to share their voice but are not interested in writing, they can also send in a short video, a descriptive note, or an illustrated graphic. There are no guarantees of being published.


4. Creative Writing at University of Connecticut has 8 seats left. This one-week residential program offers students interested in creative writing an opportunity to deep dive into essay writing with topics of their own interest while exploring a range of genres including personal essays, op-eds, commentaries, and rants.  Students will share with their peers for feedback and enjoyment.


5. Unbound creative writing classes, hosted by Gotham Writers, offer endless possibilities to write from the heart, challenge the pen, and explore what writing has to offer. Teens will explore how they write and work on beating the blank page, finding inspiration, and getting a taste of both fiction and nonfiction.
