School for Advanced Studies

Application Information

Who can apply?

Students who will be in 11th or 12th grade
SAS is designed for motivated and academically talented 11th and 12th grade students whose needs are not met in the traditional high school setting. The school is not a magnet school. Student selection is based solely on the order of application among students who meet the basic requirements for admission. Students apply from all senior high schools in the district and numerous private and parochial schools. Additionally, many home-schooled students choose SAS to complete their secondary studies and begin the transition to college.

What do I need to do to apply to SAS?

minimum 3.0 unweighted GPA
record of good attendance
record of good citizenship
submit an application to SAS and MDC (both turned in to the SAS site you hope to attend)

When and how should I apply?

At that meeting, you will receive applications and more specific instructions about completing the application process. You may download our application here.
