    The Advanced Studies Laureate Program

    Available for the Classes of 2019 and 2020

    The overall goal of the Advanced Studies Laureate Program is to provide a rigorous academic course of study and to challenge and recognize high-achieving students.  Although centered on Advanced Studies courses, the program encompasses other activities that enhance a student’s general background and preparation for higher education.  The program assumes each candidate’s exceptional motivation, aptitude, and achievement while encouraging high levels of integration of ideas and application of skills.
