Our campus task force is monitoring the situation daily and making active decisions as we receive new information. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our campus community. You can stay updated with all developments on Wharton’s coronavirus webpage. 

The Wharton Global Youth Program mobilizes the extensive opportunities of the Wharton academic community to educate, inform and inspire pre-collegiate students to explore business practices, analyze the world’s complex challenges, and take the needed steps to become leaders who will transform the global economy.

Wharton Summer High School Programs

The Wharton Summer High School Programs are residential experiences for students currently enrolled in grades 9–11. Led by Wharton faculty and instructional staff, programs explore topics that align with Wharton research and teaching. Pre-collegiate students engage with our rigorous business education before making a post-secondary choice, and get the chance to study and network with global peers.


Knowledge@Wharton High School

Knowledge@Wharton High School is the only online business journal for high school students. The regularly updated publication includes news-driven articles, videos and podcasts that introduce high school students to business, entrepreneurship and leadership. The website also features engaging classroom tools for teachers.


Wharton Academic Year Programs

Through academic year programs (September – May), students and educators engage with Wharton from classrooms, homes, or experiences offered in locations around the world. Academic year programs take place either online or in-person, giving participants the chance to continue their high school studies while also exploring various fields of interest with Wharton. Programs include the Global High School Investment Competition, online courses, and short, on-location global learning opportunities.
