Crimson Summer Academy Archive

The Crimson Summer Academy at Harvard University is an exciting and innovative program for motivated high school students with a passion for learning and a desire to excel.

Over the course of three consecutive summers, 30 high-achieving students from Boston and Cambridge high schools participate in classes, projects, field trips and cultural activities as they prepare for success in college and beyond. Through small group instruction, sustained support, and close mentoring relationships with Harvard undergraduates, these "Crimson Scholars" expand their vision of what is possible as they prepare for admission to challenging four-year colleges and universities.
