Program Features

The Program kicks-off with a mandatory Orientation Session the week before the Program begins to introduce parents and students to the Tufts Pre-College experience.

During the Program, we offer a series of workshops to help rising Juniors and Seniors think about and work towards the college application process. The best part is, these workshops are included as a part of your course tuition. This year’s workshops include SAT Prep and an Admissions Essay Workshop.
