Each summer, Teacher Prep supports the Princeton University Preparatory Program’s Summer Institute in which high achieving, low income high school students (known as PUPP scholars) participate in a six-and-a-half week summer institute on Princeton’s campus. PUPP Scholars participate for three consecutive summers, starting the summer after 9th grade. Princeton University students are critical to the success of the Summer Institute, serving as Teaching Assistants and providing academic and program support, as well as mentorship to PUPP scholars. The PUPP TA application process occurs in early March each year. For more information about the PUPP Summer Institute Teaching Assistant positions, please contact Mr. Torey Wilson, PUPP Associate Director
Additionally, PUPP provides academic and cultural enrichment during the school year, through weekly sessions taught by PUPP Teaching Fellows, most of whom are Princeton graduate students. The Fellows use current events, contemporary fiction, and student work to continue working toward the program’s goal of developing critical communication skills (reading, writing, listening, thinking and speaking). For more information about the PUPP Teaching Fellows program, please contact Dr. Jason Klugman, PUPP Director.
