Why Summer Discovery at UCLA?

UCLA is recognized worldwide for excellence in academics and athletics. It is consistently ranked as one of America’s top 25 universities and has more NCAA team championships than any other school. Famous alumni include Matt Damon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Jim Morrison. With its ideal location in suburban Los Angeles, UCLA is the perfect setting for a pre-college program.

At Summer Discovery UCLA, we help you prepare for your transition from high school to college. Our pre-college program combines academics, athletics, and activities to give high school students a great introduction to college life.

During our 32 year partnership with UCLA Summer Sessions, UCLA Anderson, UCLA Extension, and UCLA Recreation, we have provided incredible summer experiences for over 15,000 high school students.
