Klein College’s pre-college summer workshops will teach you the basics of media—including broadcasting, reporting and writing—and how to think about projects through the lens of the university’s main laboratory of Philadelphia.  

Summer college programming is for students entering grades 10, 11 or 12, and will offer students a chance to experience Temple University academics while exploring potential college majors through non-credit workshops.  


Students in Temple's pre-college workshops can do the following:  

  • Attend two non-credit workshops (one in the morning and one in the afternoon, topics vary depending on dates) 
  • Develop their interests in various academic fields 
  • Build their confidence and sense of independence 
  • Engage in interactive, project-based learning 
  • Make new friends and build community with other students from diverse backgrounds. 


The pre-college workshops offer (2) two-week sessions throughout the summer. All sessions are offered in person on Temple's Main Campus in Philadelphia. Students may apply for one or both sessions:  

  • July 8 - July 19, 2024, residential students move in on July 7
  • July 22 - August 2, 2024, residential students move in on July 21
