It's amazing how much an interested high school student can learn in the course of a few hours by doing the right google searches. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of guides to some of the best posts around.

Don't forget:
(a) use the collegeconfidential search engine. there are many many informative threads in the past. if you really don't want to register, google site:talk.collegeconfidential.com [thing you're looking for], or site:mathlinks.ro [], site:physicsforums.com []

Suggestion for google searches: use site:.edu to restrict searches to universities. [url]http://www.math.(universitydomain).edu[/url] is very helpful. if you want to restrict to particular university, you can do that. Frex, site:math.caltech.edu.

Summer programs: SSP, HSHSP, RSI, SSTP (google is nice)
