The Cambridge Prep Experience is an academic program for students in grades 8-9 held in Peterhouse, the oldest college in Cambridge University, England. There are twenty-five courses available, as diverse as Espionage, Molecular Biology, Social Psychology, and Speech and Debate. Students attending the Cambridge Prep choose one subject per two-week session, which they study six mornings and three afternoons a week.
The international faculty includes Gates and Marshall Scholars, as well as creative professionals – actors, artists, photographers, and writers – from London and elsewhere. Together with program administrators, including Program Deans and Activities Directors, students enjoy a daily schedule that combines intellectual and curricular adventure, cultural enrichment, guest speakers, field trips, activities and sports – all in a safe, supervised environment.
