It offers academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and summer residential life experience. In order to participate in the Program, students must be nominated by their high schools and then compete on a state-wide level. Selection for the program is highly competitive, with an application process similar to that of prestigious colleges and universities. Students who are selected attend the Program without charge.
