Rice for High School Students Program 2011

Did you know high school students can get a taste of college life at Rice this summer? Rice for High School Students is now taking applications for rising high school juniors and seniors to attend summer school classes at Rice for credit.

Rebecca Sanchez, assistant director for Rice for High School Students, says “It gives high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to explore a university setting while engaging in academic pursuits. They take courses with other Rice students and are treated no differently. They must prepare for class, participate in class discussions, do homework, take exams and have access to the library and other resources. Our goal is for the students to get a real feel for the college experience.”

Students who complete the program prepare for their future while gaining a great perspective on college life on the Rice campus.

“By the end of the program, I have to admit that I had become utterly enraptured by Rice University in all aspects: the campus, students, professors and culturally rich society,” according to a summer 2011 participant. “My learning experience  at Rice was one I will never forget. When I apply for college, Rice University will be my #1 choice!”

We are currently seeking students to apply for this program by March 23. Who do you know?
