Pre-College Scholars are not taught by high school teachers or seasonal instructors. They are taught by UC Berkeley faculty (and their Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs). This ensures that all students will have an immersive experience and know exactly what to expect should they choose to apply to UC Berkeley in the future. All pre-college students are treated and evaluated like any other UC Berkeley matriculated student. Instructors will not even know who falls under the Pre-College Scholars program and who doesn't as that information is not normally provided to them through the course of the program.
