UCSB Pre-College Programs for High School Students

Ready to explore the beautiful beaches and scenic mountains of Santa Barbara while conducting research and taking academically intensive courses in your favorite subjects? Located on the edge of the Santa Ynez mountains and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, University of California, Santa Barbara provides a dynamic living and learning environment where students can make their dreams a reality.   

Summer Sessions, in partnership with Summer Discovery, will be running two pre-college programs on campus this summer. The Research Mentorship Program (RMP) and the Summer Research Academies (SRA) allow participants to discover interdisciplinary subjects while discovering new knowledge through university-level research. These transformative summer experiences are designed to shape each student's academic, professional, personal, and social development. We can't wait for you to join us on-campus in our 21st year with the University of California, Santa Barbara, and learn from top instructors at America’s #7 Top Public University.
