2020 Application for High School Summer Program

Important update!

CHS Greece, following Harvard University’s COVID-19 related announcements and guidelines, as well as those from the Greek and international authorities, and based on discussions with other collaborating units of the University, decided to proceed with changes in the structure of this year’s High School Summer Program (HSSP 2020).

The program will not be canceled, but it will be offered online during the scheduled dates (July 2-17, 2020).

Program faculty and managers are working with web-based tools offered by Harvard to develop an innovative, synchronous and asynchronous educational template for this year’s Program.
The participant students and faculty will not be asked to travel to Nafplio, Greece, in the summer but to join a learning management system (LMS) and participate in the HSSP remotely.

Moreover, CHS managers and program faculty are currently exploring the possibility to bring together, at some point, this year’s HSSP team for in-person sessions at the Center’s premises in Nafplio. Further announcements will follow about this in the next few months.

The application process will remain open for all interested students until May 10, 2020.
The program will be offered online on July 2-17, 2020.

For questions please contact Ms. Matina Goga, CHS Greece Curricular Development Manager, through telephone (+30 27520 47030 ext. 1, Nafplio, Greece) and/or email hssp_greece(at)chs.harvard.edu.
