Who Should Apply?

While our curriculum is undoubtedly rigorous, this program is not meant solely for top-performing students. Rather, we seek engaged and curious young people who are looking for a challenge. In many cases, a lack of interest, rather than a lack of capacity, can be the cause of poor performance in school. For this reason, we base our admissions decisions primarily on one-on-one interviews, writing assessments, and a sample Seminar class. We encourage students to apply regardless of whether or not they think they “have the grades” to get in. The fact that a student has sought out an early college opportunity is often proof enough that they are ready for the challenging work ahead.
