During Your Visit
Students get a glimpse into college life through a Q&A session, campus tour, and college class of their choosing. Over lunch, they'll get the chance to sit down with current college students and ask them their most burning questions.
On Campus with Project Teach
Students select courses for their visit based on individual interest. Here, Harvard Instructor Sunn m’Cheaux teaches seventh-graders the complex origins of Gullah culture and the ancestral language its people still speak today.
Students have lunch at Annenberg Dining Hall, the dining space for Harvard freshmen. Here, Crimson Key Society students join groups at their lunch tables to engage in an informal discussion about college.
The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) is an incubator for creativity where students consistently push the limits of modern theater. As one of our key partners, the A.R.T. offers the opportunity for Project Teach participants to go behind the scenes of a show's pre-production during their campus visit.
Exploring College Classes
Dancing it out
"I love moving with young people. I'm trying new ways of doing things and what we think teaching and learning looks like." Harvard lecturer Aysha Upchurch teaches HipHopEx, a Project Teach offering that explores the roles and possibilities for Hip Hop arts in educational settings.
Thinking outside the box
“You don’t have to study something traditional to have a successful education, and whatever you’re passionate about is the thing you should be pursuing." Harvard alumnus Devon Guinn '17 has an inspiring message for students who attend his popular beatboxing class.
College Experience Q&A with the Class of 2023
Crimson Key Society
The mission of the Crimson Key Society is to make Harvard feel welcoming and accessible to all visitors. During the Project Teach visit, Crimson Key Society members share their stories, give an overview of different types of colleges, lead a tour of Harvard's campus, answer questions, and encourage students to explore their options for college.
After the Visit, What's Next?
Keep the conversation going long after the visit is over! The final leg of the Project Teach experience connects students with people in their community who can help them reach their goal of making their college and career ambitions a reality.
