Admission: High School
To ensure the best fit and success of our future students, we get to know every applicant. We look for students who are curious, who want to learn everything, and who want to go in-depth. Like many great colleges, we look beyond test scores. Share your scores only if they help us know more about who you are as a student. Otherwise, we review your academic record, meet with you, and request a self-portrait – a creative reflection that shows us a bit about who you are and how you see the world.
8:30 – 10 am
