At Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) Pre-College, rising high school juniors and seniors can live like RISD students and work alongside hundreds of other creative, highly motivated peers who will inspire them to push their limits and produce their best work. Students will follow a college-level curriculum with day-long studio classes, visits to the Nature Lab and RISD Museum, and critiques and projects that will forever shape the way they approach art and design. Summer 2023 runs from June 24 to July 29.

RISD’s Advanced Program Online is a year-round online intensive designed for high school students interested in pursuing art and design in college. This certificate program is for change-makers who want to develop their art practice, learn new ways to collaborate, and create a future they are excited about. The spring 2023 term runs from March 4 to May 21, and the summer 2023 term runs from June 17 to August 13.

Both programs offer a college-level curriculum that provides a strong foundational understanding of drawing and design principles. Whether on-campus or online, students will participate in courses led by professional instructors, learn to manage their time and self-motivate, and develop a portfolio of concepts, sketches, and finished pieces that can be included in or inform their college application.

Complete and submit your Pre-College application by December 1, and attend the program to receive $100 in RISD Bucks upon your arrival to campus.
