Pre - College Programs


  • Houston Pre-Freshman Enrichment Program (PREP) distinguished and intensive mathematics-based summer enrichment, program that encourages high ability, socially and economically disadvantaged students whose interests lie in mathematics, science, computer science, or engineering technology. PREP provides the educational enrichment opportunities necessary to pursue careers in these fields. Students are invited to apply within their 7th - 9th grade. Visit for further information.
  • Computational Science Academy (aka Saturday PREP) An academic year continuation of the PREP Program that mentors and nurtures PREP students. This academy provides necessary reinforcement and encouragement to pursue mathematics, science, and engineering technology careers and teaches conceptualization and problem solving. Students in 8th - 9th grade are encouraged to apply.
  • CS Academy An activity of the Advanced Distributed Simulation Research Consortium (ADSRC - a unit of the U.S. Army Research Office) designed to allow socially and economically disadvantaged students to bypass remediation upon entering college in areas of computer science, computational science and mathematics. Topics include: Pre-Calculus; C++; Java; and HTML. Students in their senior year of high school are encouraged to apply.
  • Scholars Academy High school seniors are invited each year to apply for competitive scholarships of up to $5,000 per academic year to major in computer science, mathematics, engineering, or any area of natural science at the University of Houston-Downtown. Visit for additional information and applications.
  • High School Tours/Visits Tours of the university‚Äôs facilities and demonstrations within the ADSRC Graphics/Simulation Lab are provided for visiting groups of students from high schools. Middle and high school instructors/counselors are invited to contact our Recruiter, Mr. Theophilus Berry (713-221-8938) to schedule tours or a visit to your school.
