Welcome to HSSP!

With over fifty years of history, HSSP is a multi-weekend program where hundreds of middle/high schoolers come to take classes, both academic and non-academic, at MIT. Join us for many days of learning anything and everything!

HSSP is fully student-run by MIT ESP. It is held once during spring and once during summer.
