Pre-College Programs

Wake Forest Pre-College Programs are designed for high school students to experience academic rigor, dynamic learning and enriching social interactions in a supportive college environment. All of our programs are meant for enrichment and are not-for-credit, meaning students don’t have the pressure of formal grades.

“I just want to thank you, the counselors, staff, medical school, the university, the instructors, presenters and EVERYONE involved with this program for providing such an amazing opportunity and experience for Aria. She was safe, she was engaged, challenged, motivated, intrigued, encouraged, enlightened, informed, equipped, and armed for the next decisions she has to make.”

Kimberly, parent of a Pre-College Programs student
