HSSP is a 6-8 week program held during the spring and summer at MIT and during the fall at Harvard. Each week, 7th to 12th grade students visit MIT to take up to three classes on a wide range of subjects. As an HSSP teacher, you get to pick any subject of interest and explore it in-depth with your chosen number of students. To see a past catalog, check out the Spring HSSP 2013 Class Catalog.

Feel free to visit Logistics to find out more about how ESP can help you!


Interested in teaching a one-time class instead of a long-term one? Sprinkler is a sub-program during HSSP where middle school students can opt to take a new Splash-style (one-shot) class every week in place of one of their long-term classes. For more information, including how to register, please check out the Sprinkler page.


Yes! The day that you are teaching you are welcome to come eat a free lunch with all of our other teachers for HSSP. You will also receive a free t-shirt.
