Boston Area University Tour




Institute of




The purpose of the University Tours is to provide Rio Grande Valley students an opportunity to explore universities they would otherwise overlook when considering options for their postsecondary education. Exposing students to campus life at Ivy League and top-tier universities demystifies these universities and students no longer feel that an Ivy League education is beyond their reach.

​The Boston area tour includes visits to Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Brown University in Providence, RI. Students also experience a historical excursion. This tour is exclusive to districts participating in the Harvard Math for Teaching Program.

“Before the trip I never really thought about even applying, but after the trip I honestly do think that there’s a chance I can get into one of these schools.”
