Summer HSSP 2024 will not be happening this year. We're sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused.

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, taught by people like you. Join us for many days of teaching anything and everything!

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

Teach Anything

As a volunteer HSSP teacher, you can pick any topic you want and explore it in depth. Your class can range from a large lecture to a small discussion to a project-based workshop, and we offer generous funding for class supplies.

Most classes are taught by small groups of MIT undergrad or graduate students, and we also often have classes taught by people in neighboring universities and other adults in the local area. 

Why Teach?

As a longer-term program than Splash and Spark, teaching at HSSP can be a great way to further develop your teaching skills and engage in depth with school-age students.

Your class will also provide a much-appreciated opportunity for students to learn special topics outside of their school classes.
