Pre-College Program in American History

Start Your Future by Studying the Past...

The National Institute of American History & Democracy (NIAHD) is proud to host the Pre-College Program in American History at William & Mary.

A background in American history is not required, however, an open mind, independent thinking, creativity, and a spirit of adventure are essential.

In 2021, high school students studied virtually from home while talking with professional historians and curators, and learning not only the history of America but what's being done to preserve it.

At Fort Monroe near Hampton, VA, Pre-College students in the History 218 seminar discuss topics regarding events that led up to the Civil War.
