Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
In agreement with the university's decisions about its summer programming, SPCS has come to the difficult decision that we cannot host students on campus for our residential programs this summer. Instead, we are pleased to offer an online alternative to the Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes this summer. For more information about the program change and Stanford's response to the developing situation, please visit our Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies updates page.
