Tufts Summer Accelerator

The Tufts Summer Accelerator is designed to provide students with a chance to immerse themselves in the undergraduate experience, allowing highly motivated students to engage in their own academic interests and develop their own ideas. Students enroll in two college-level seminars per two-week session, designed specifically for high school students. These seminars are small (15-20 students), discussion-based, interactive sessions in subject areas from across the University.
