UT PREP 1 is a 6 week summer academic enrichment program for students currently in 6th or 7th grade in the Austin community who have an interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Courses include Logic, Problem Solving, Engineering, and College and Career Exploration.  On January 29th, 2018 48 seats will open to the public. There are no scholarships for these 48 seats.

How are participants chosen? Students will submit grade reports for the 2017-2018 school year containing at least two 6-weeks, an application, a letter of recommendation from a mathematics or science teacher, and a one page, hand-written essay by applicant using the application questions as a guideline, and unedited by family, teacher, or any other individual. Download blank templates for the teacher recommendation and student essay here. 

If your student is chosen, you will have two options for the mandatory parent & student orientation and student mathematics placement test at The University of Texas at Austin: 

Saturday, February 24th from 8:00-10:30am  or Saturday, March 3rd from 8:30-11:00am 

The mathematic placement test helps us ensure that each camper is adequately challenged & supported during the summer. Each camper receives individual attention from a Master Teacher and several UT student interns. During their camp time, campers will take field trips and eat lunch in common areas alongside UT students, explore different places on campus, swim in the pool, and play sports in the gym at UT. Every summer of UT PREP can also count as one high school CTE credit, as approved by the Texas Education Agency.
