Class structure

Whether our pre-college programs take place online or in person, you can expect your program to:

  • engage you and provide opportunities for plenty of interaction with your instructors and classmates,
  • energize you and give you a sense of connection that comes from being in a Temple classroom,
  • provide you with "flex" time to work on group projects or other assignments,
  • provide you with real-world scenarios to think through and opportunities to practice applying what you learn,
  • and support you with a dedicated team of undergraduate students,  who will join your classes and be there to answer any  questions you have along the way.

Temple Pre-college Programs also offer social activities throughout the program for students to have fun and get to know each other. These activities typically take place during lunch, evenings, and weekends, and are a great opportunity to make new friends and try new things. Learn more about evening and weekend activities.
