In an effort to maximize our impact, we will only provide on-campus summer programming for high school students for Summer 2023. Students ages 13 and older are encouraged to apply for our Online Immersion Program or wait to apply as current high school students and join us on-campus for our Summer Immersion Program. Stay in the know on our future plans for middle school students by following us on social media.
The Wake Forest Summer Exploration Program is a hands-on STEM learning experience that allows middle school students to choose their own adventure!

The curriculum includes hands-on activities and simulations that allow students to dive deeper into STEM topics.
Build friendships with like-minded peers from all over the world and learn alongside Wake Forest University undergraduate mentors.
“The Summer Exploration Program ensures a safe summer experience for participants, offers the unique opportunity for young students to experience “college life” in a safe way. This will help prepare my child for when he actually goes to college. Offers excellent choices for different adventures.”– Heather, Parent of Explorer, Summer Exploration Program 2022
