WEBINAR: An In-depth Look at The Wharton School Summer Programs for High School Students

A couple of weeks ago, we proudly announced our new partnership with the official pre-college programs of The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Now, we hope to help you identify the right students for these Wharton Global Youth Programs. 

 Admission to the Wharton summer high school programs is highly selective, as the curricula offer a rigorous business education, with a full-day (9:00am to 5:00pm) of academic instruction.

A student’s academic standing is very important and will provide a baseline for admissions.  However, the Wharton admissions committee is taking a holistic approach, looking for students who present the most compelling case and distinguish themselves from the other applicants.

 What characteristics is Wharton looking for in applicants for the Wharton Global Youth Programs? 

  • Students who are highly motivated and serious about their academics.
  • Strong academic coursework with demonstrated academic excellence (most students will have a minimum unweighted GPA in the mid- to high- threes) and strong standardized test scores.
  • International students need to be fluent in English, (with a TOEFL score of 100 or IELTS of 7) to understand course content, interact with the faculty and students, and prepare clear and detailed written assignments.
  • Leadership experiences in extra-curricular activities and clubs, and the ability to work collaboratively in teams with like-minded peers.

 We are hosting a webinar to take a more in depth look at the high school summer program opportunities at The Wharton School, and review the application process and requirements onThursday, December 5, 2019.  To participate in the webinar, please see the login information below and plan to join us at one of the times below:

We understand that not all of your students will be the right fit for the programs at The Wharton School, and also offer Business and Leadership-focused academic programming at many other top universities such as UCLA, University of Michigan, Georgetown University and Cambridge University, to name a few. Since 1966, Summer Discovery has transformed the lives of students from around the world, with inspiring academic enrichment and internship programs in partnership with 14 prestigious universities in the US, UK, and Singapore. Last year, Summer Discovery welcomed students from over 45 states and 75 countries.

 

We look forward to welcoming your students to campus.  For more information, and for help in recommending the right program to your students, please contact us.
