Summer 2020

For the health and safety of our community, we have made the decision that Accelerate: Pre-College will not operate our residential programs on our Boston campus as planned for Summer 2020. Our online program details are live now on the Summer 2020 page. We look forward to running these online programs this summer and residential programs in the future when it is safe to do so.
