The Dixie State University Precollege Program (PREP) is a NO COST seven-week summer school that challenges high achieving 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Underrepresented, females, and first-generation students are encouraged to apply.

Dixie PREP motivates and prepares high-achieving students for success in school and future STEM careers.

Dixie PREP runs Monday – Friday. Fridays are reserved for field trips and special educational events.
