Nomination Process

All of our Precollege Programs accept nominations from Precollege alumni, school counselors, educators, mentors, and clergy of exceptional teens.

Please note that the program is only available to students who are currently, freshmen, sophomores and juniors in the 2018-2019 school year. Nominees will typically rank in the top 10% of their high school class with strong academic performance and a passion for their field of learning and/or art.

Once nominations are reviewed, nominees will receive an email with instructions on how to accept their nomination and next steps. Nominees must accept their nomination in order to be considered for admission to the program. Space is limited and our programs are selective.
