Experience the Harvard Campus
Each summer, Harvard Summer School organizes hundreds of activities for students, ranging from movie nights and recreational sports to college admissions panels, talent shows, and trips around New England. There are activities in both in-person and online formats, so all our students can socialize and grow outside the classroom.
