Summer High School Institute

Information for Students

The Summer High School Institute (HSI) is a three-week summer residential program held on the University of Wyoming Campus for approximately one-hundred high ability sophomore high school students from around the state.  HSI originated as an effort to meet the growing needs of some of Wyoming's most capable student that could not be met in public schools.  The emphasis of HSI is on the development of the whole person rather than concentrating on academics alone.


HSI students are a wonderfully diverse mixture of young people from all over the State.  To respond to this diversity, the program provides a range of activities, both academic and non-academic, so that each student can take the full measure of his or her own capacities and interests.  HSI is a time of challenge, excitement, exploration, and discovery. 


If you feel you have what it takes to be an HSI'er, please, contact your school counselor for nomination information!


Eligibility Criteria:

  • be in 10th grade at a public or private school in Wyoming
  • be a current resident of Wyoming
  • intent to return to a Wyoming school for the following fall term
  • be committed to participate fully in the program
  • be able to participate for the entire three weeks of the program
