Pre-College Programs

Weeklong summer immersion programs at UNC Asheville offer students a deep dive into academic topics and hands-on experience.

UNC Asheville’s Pre-College Programs introduce high school students to college-level study, university life, and career options in a dynamic learning environment. Each one-week residential program offers deep immersion into an academic topic, challenging activities, and the opportunity to experience campus life. PLANNING FOR 2022 HAS BEGUN!

Format:  Pre-College Programs run from Sunday to Friday, and each day is filled with both classroom and recreational activity. All programs include hands-on learning and projects, and many programs will feature off-campus excursions. All students live on campus to fully experience university life and the surrounding community.
