MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM
Experiencing life on campus includes relaxing with friends in an oversized Memorial Union terrace chair.
PEOPLE (Pre–College Enrichment Opportunity Program for Learning Excellence for middle school students is a year-round learning adventure that challenges and stimulates students who are considering a college education.
The six-year program for students in the Madison Metropolitan School District begins in the summer after sixth grade.

During the school year, UW-Madison faculty, staff and graduate students work on site with PEOPLE students providing academic skills development and tutorial services.
Core subject areas are: reading, writing, mathematics, English, science, social studies and foreign languages.
Students also participate in campus orientations and cultural enrichment activities such as attending performances at the Wisconsin Theatre.
