Our pre-college programs put the inner drive of your talented high schooler into high gear with an interactive sneak peek into engineering. With math and science as a strength, our programs will ignite your student’s interest in engineering—all in an inviting, collaborative setting with peers following a similar path.

Courses are designed by trusted scientists and engineers from Johns Hopkins University, so you can be sure the academic rigor and ingenuity runs deep throughout the course. What’s learning without engaging fun? Courses are packed with that, too. And students can top off this experience with the opportunity to earn college credit.

Hopkins Engineering Innovation Pre-College provides a preview of the college experience designed for academically motivated students with an interest in getting a head start in their transition from high school. Our programs are different from traditional STEM summer camps and after school programs, they are college-level courses with college-level standards. Students who enroll in Hopkins Engineering Innovation Pre-College will be immersed in an academically intense, fast-paced college environment for the duration of the program.

Wanting to invest in your student’s future, but looking for need-based financial assistance? We understand! Scholarship opportunities are important to us. Engineering Innovation is pleased to offer need-based scholarships to qualified students.

Part of the Hopkins Engineering Innovation Pre-College experience is going through an application and enrollment process similar to what students will do as an undergraduate in college. Students should complete the application themselves with help and guidance from you.

As parent(s)/guardian(s), you are encouraged to pay close attention to both the Financial Aid Application and Parent Information and Agreement tabs within the application, but you should not fill out the forms for the student. It is especially important that the email address associated with the application belongs to the student as it will be the primary means of contact during the application process, enrollment, and the course.

Parents/guardians of individuals under the age of 18 in attendance at a university program that does not offer a postsecondary degree or certificate shall retain FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) rights for the participant. This means that parents/guardians of students under the age of 18 can access the student’s records and grades.

Generally, we communicate by email directly with prospective and current students and via MS Teams with our current students.  We do not communicate directly with parent(s)/guardian(s) or other third parties. Please be sure your student checks email daily to ensure they receive important communications.
