What Our Students Say

The Stanford Summer Humanities Institute is a powerful program that builds on the interaction between distinguished Stanford faculty and academically talented and intellectually curious high school students. 

As the program is residential, students are immersed in their study. The classroom discussions continue into the dining halls and throughout the evening. Students describe their experience as life-changing.
