We believe design, and design thinking are forces for good in the world. Our Pre-College Programs provide students with the skills they need to pursue careers in design, and empowers them to use design as a tool for social change.

As an internationally recognized institution of architecture and design, the BAC’s Pre-College Programs offer high school aged students a range of diverse opportunities to engage in hands-on experiences in design, critical thinking, and problem-solving, as well as opportunities to collaborate with their peers and leading design professionals around the world.

Our inclusive and accessible Pre-College Programs are designed for high school students interested in learning more about architecture, interior architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, and much more! On-campus and online programs offer students flexible options that create pathways towards earning a degree in the design fields.

Benefiting from our expertise and global network, the BAC’s Pre-College Programs help propel students from preK-12 systems across national and international post secondary organizations into design education.
