PRE-COLLEGE (SUMMER) PROGRAMS

Pre-college programs are one of many ways to explore your academic curiosities, gain insight to colleges, and demonstrate your desire to learn.   Participation is NOT pre-admittance to the college.   Search for programs by subject and at schools of interest.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
