Our programs are scheduled to include a variety of Boston’s best activities such as Blue Man Group, Boston Duck Tours, Boston Tea Party Ship Experience, trips to Macy’s and the Massachusetts State House Capitol Tour.

We partner with agencies at Harvard to create the experience of being an undergrad! Our lectures are hosted in classroom space at Harvard and MIT. Our lectures are hosted by current Harvard students and PhD candidates. Our standard curriculum includes lessons on leadership, public speaking, time management and applying to college. Lectures can also be curated to meet the needs of your group. We can provide invitation letters for your students in order to help facilitate the visa process. In addition, all participants will receive a recognition document in honor of their time spent at our program.

During July and August we organize lodging for students and chaperones at Boston-area college dormitories to give a 24/7 college experience. Breakfast and dinner are included at the dormitory.
