Pre-College Programs

Mason is dedicated to providing educational pathways to talented high school students before they even apply to college.

We use our position at the intersection of government, industry, and research to partner with community and national organizations and extend one-of-a-kind opportunities to young scholars across the country.

Whether they're taking dual enrollment courses through their high school, or traveling here for our Washington, D.C., conferences, students leave Mason's pre-college programs with a richer worldview, a stronger sense of self-confidence, and a head start on the road to college.
