When & Where


NIAHD's Pre-College Program in American History lasts for 3 full weeks, beginning on a Sunday afternoon and ending early on a Saturday morning. 

NIAHD offers two sessions each summer and two classes each session. 

Summer 2020
Session 1: June 21 - July 11

Session 2: July 12 - August 1

All participants are expected to attend each and every day of the program. Arriving late or departing early for any reason may have an adverse effect on the student’s final grade and make acclimating to a new environment that much more difficult. Students should only apply to the session that their personal schedules allow them to attend.


Students will live, sleep, and study on the main campus at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. 

All Pre-College students and residential staff will be housed together in one of the dormitories on campus, which will be a short walk from the dining hall, library, and classrooms.
