Hello, students and families! This year, we’re pleased to announce Early Arrival Options, for students arriving on Saturday, June 21 or Sunday, June 22.

The aim of the Early Arrival Options is to give our international and long-distance travelers a chance to rest, relax, learn new skills, and become familiar with the Stanford campus before our formal program start on Monday, June 23.

Option 1 with arrival on Saturday, June 21 ($375) includes a campus tour and a Sunday field trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Option 2 with arrival on Sunday, June 22 ($175) includes training in WordPress publishing and iPad video, as well as a trip to the top of Stanford’s Hoover Tower. Cost includes housing, dining, transportation, tickets, and iPad rentals, plus a Monday “Ready, Set, Go!” workshop where students can brush up on their journalism skills.

Please note that the Sunday field trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium requires a Saturday evening stay so that students are on campus in time for our departure on Sunday morning.
