Why Rochester?


At the University of Rochester, students pursue only what they’re interested in. With Rochester’s Pre-College Programs, high school students get that same freedom. Students who participate in Pre-College Programs get a true sense of college life, increase their appreciation of cultural diversity, and build lasting relationships with peers. Students will gain on their academic abilities and potential, and explore career possibilities.


We offer options for synchronous programs with live instruction in intensive studies courses, non-credit courses, and college credit-bearing courses, plus options for asynchronous online courses to learn at your own pace.


University faculty and graduate students teach classes and are committed to cultivating the minds of young students. With small class sizes, instructors mentor each student and give valuable insights into the theories, technologies, and principles of their field.



Explore the University, broaden your educational experience, sharpen academics skills, and learn more about who—not just what—you want to be.

As a community member of the University of Rochester, we are committed to ensuring our programs are ever better through its Vision and Values.
