Only students who registered and entered the lottery before 11:59 pm on March 23 will be able to select classes in the FCFS phase (no exceptions, no waitlists).

Lottery results are now available (click "Check My Schedule" to the left).

The first-come, first-serve phase closes at 11:59 pm on April 5.

Please note that to participate in Splash you MUST turn in a completed and signed waiver form (click here) at on-site sign-in or you will NOT be able to attend Splash.

What is Splash?

Splash is a two-day marathon of classes in a variety of subjects that are open to all students in grades 7-12 (ages 11-18 if homeschooled and lacking a formal grade level). The classes you take are completely up to you as the goal of Splash is to get students excited about learning and help them explore new topics.

How do I register for Splash?

For more info about how student registration works, please see our student guide and read our FAQs.

Students should make an account on our website to register for the next upcoming Splash. Our registration happens in two phases: a class lottery and first-come, first-serve class (FCFS) sign-up.

During the class lottery, students can submit their preferences for classes they wanted to take during each timeslot. After we run the class lottery and release the enrollment results, we open up the remaining classes for enrollment in the first-come, first-serve (FCFS) phase of registration. During this time, students can go online and enroll themselves in any remaining spots in classes to fill up their schedule.

Splash Classes

Classes are taught by college students and local community members. Our teachers create their own classes, which means every class will be led by someone excited about the topic. The classes are generally one to four hours long and may be lecture-style, hands-on, or discussion-based. The subject matter for classes ranges from casual hobbies to intensive academic subjects.


Take as many classes as you want throughout the whole weekend at Splash for $40. There is a sibling discount, so additional siblings can participate in Splash for only $20 each. Lunch is now included in the $40 tuition cost, but students must be wearing their nametag to receive lunch (no lunch for parents, sorry!). All payments are made in person on the day of Splash. Cash or checks made out to "Stanford Educational Studies Program" or "Stanford ESP" only please. If you feel you cannot pay these amounts due to financial difficulties, you can fill out a Financial Aid Application when you register for Splash after enrollment opens.

Parents' Program

During the weekend of Splash, we have the Stanford Splash Parents' Program available to the parents of Splash students. The Parents' Program is a series of talks and sessions relating to Splash, your child's education, and college admissions.

Special Needs Participants

We strive to make the Splash experience as enjoyable and accessible as possible for all our participants. Please visit this page for more information if you need special accommodation.
