For Parents

Johns Hopkins Summer Programs changed my child! He went from a shy and introverted person to someone who began to believe in himself.”
– Parent of a Summer Intensive (formerly Discover Hopkins) Student, Summer 2018


Each summer, Johns Hopkins University welcomes over 2,000 students to our campus. They include Pre-College students, Hopkins undergraduates, and visiting undergraduates who are all on-campus taking summer courses. While the Homewood campus is in a bucolic setting, it is an urban campus and ensuring students’ safety, both on-campus and off is a priority.


At Johns Hopkins, we continue to be a school that is welcoming to those of all genders, national origins, ages, races, ethnicities, religions, disabilities, and sexual orientations. We value diversity, and we make every effort to provide a safe environment for all. Our University President Ronald Daniels stands committed to maintaining a welcoming environment for all.


Campus Safety and Security provides an array of services that support students’ well-being. A network of emergency telephones is set up throughout the campus that immediately connects to a security office dispatcher 24 hours a day. Uniformed officers patrol the campus at all times.

We understand how important your student’s successful and satisfying educational experience, as well as safety, is here at Hopkins. We are delighted that your son or daughter chose one of our Summer Programs and look forward to meeting and hearing from you. Please review the FAQs for further information.
