While we won't be on campus this summer, we're fortunate to be able to draw on UMass's decades-long experience of delivering high quality online instruction. Building off of our pivot to remote learning last year, we have several new programs available for high school students, all fully online, all featuring live, synchronous instruction. Check out what's new!
