Wagner College Pre-College Program for High School Students

The Wagner Pre-College Program advances the education of talented, intellectually curious high school students.

Our residential summer and non-residential fall/spring program allows select high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to expand their horizons. With a number of course offerings to choose from, each program is taught by leading Wagner faculty and is designed to help students tackle real problems, make a difference, and learn what it takes to be a leader, all in line with The Wagner Plan, which unites deep learning and practical application.
