What is YSPA?

YSPA is a 2-week online + 4-week residential research and enrichment program for 36 rising high school seniors who are interested in astronomy, physics, math, computer programming, and other science and tech fields.

YSPA has a small student-to-faculty ratio (36:6), so students get to know each other and the faculty very well.  It’s a summer experience like no other.
