Pre-College Summer Programs
Many Universities offer Summer programs for High School students. Most students have never lived away from home, or experienced college life. A Summer program gives you an opportunity to stay on campus (typically in dorms), and get to know the surrounding area. These courses also include classes / academic activities, career counseling, and visits to companies in the area.
Almost every University offers such programs. E.g.
