All students enrolled in a Wharton Summer High School online course are granted access to the 9-week Wharton GYM (Global Youth Meetup), an extracurricular programming platform allowing students to connect with Wharton before, during and after their summer online courses.

The Wharton GYM provides a combination of live and independent programming and is designed around the goal of further introducing Wharton to high school students.

Programming includes:

  • Introductions to Wharton research centers to learn about cutting-edge research and innovation stemming from the Wharton School
  • Presentations by Penn’s cultural houses and student organizations to fully immerse yourself in the extended campus community
