The Concord Review Summer Program


“The writing lessons were invaluable, covering material and strategies I had never learned in school.”

Ryan Chung, then a sophomore at Manhasset High School in Long Island, NY, attended the 2015 TCR Summer Program and wrote an account of his experience for Imagine magazine. You can read a copy of his article, "Historians in Training." here.


The Concord Review Summer Program is a 2-week intensive workshop that provides guidance for high school students in writing high-caliber, in-depth history research papers. During the program, students attend interactive group classes, have individual meetings with the instructors, attend a question and answer session with past authors, work in research and writing sessions, visit historical sites, see documentaries on various topics in history, and read past Concord Review essays.

The program also includes time for students to have discussions with their peers on history-related articles, what they have learned, the topics of their paper, and other history research and academic-writing-related topics.

US classes will be held on the beautiful campus of  Regis College, just west of Boston.  Lodging for boarding students will be here as well.

The venue for classes in Seoul, South Korea will announced in the spring of 2017.

We have expanded the program this year to two Boston sessions
and one session in Seoul, Korea.  Register today to secure your spot.

Last year's students liked:

"...the freedom we were given to pursue our own papers and research on our own."

"I could reach the teacher with a quick question at any time while writing."

"The resources within the Regis Library and the openness of the teachers for questions..."

" I was challenged with writing such a long paper... based on research."

"...that we were taught very well about each section and topic before we wrote it, and the instruction was clear and very helpful."

"The seminars...really inspired me."

"The time allocated for individual work was really helpful."

"The friendliness of my peers and the professors."

While the TCR Summer Program provides first-rate personal coaching on serious History research papers, participation cannot guarantee publication. The Concord Review selects about 5% of the papers submitted. While we welcome submissions from students who have attended the TCR Summer Programs, their papers will be considered alongside other papers submitted by diligent students from many countries.
