School for Advanced Studies to Hold Information Sessions on Early College Admission for 10th-Grade Students, Sept. 28 and Oct.12

School for Advanced Studies (SAS) will be holding information/application sessions for current 10th graders and their parents on Saturday, September 28 and Saturday, October 12 for the 2014-2015 school year, at four Miami Dade College (MDC) campuses.

SAS, a full-time, nationally-recognized, dual-enrollment high school, was ranked by Newsweek magazine in May 2013 as the 6th Best High School in America.

September 28 meetings will occur at the Kendall Campus, 11011 S.W. 104th St. at 9:00 am in the Gym Building 7000 and the Homestead Campus, 500 College Terr., will hold its session at 1:00 pm that same day in Building F, Room F222. October 12 meetings will take place at the North Campus, 11380 N.W. 27 Ave. at 9:00 am in the Lehman Theatre and at 1:00 pm at Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami, 300 NE 2nd Ave., in Room 1261.

All current Miami-Dade County 10th-graders with a minimum 3.0 unweighted grade point average are invited to apply, and may become eligible for admission upon satisfying all program requirements, including earning minimum SAS college entrance exam scores. Enrollment is limited. When the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of seats available, a random selection process will be used.

Students attending SAS complete their last two years of high school while attending MDC and, in most cases, simultaneously graduate with both a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree. Students are able to obtain a true college experience since both their college dual-enrollment courses and their Advanced Placement (AP) high school courses take place on the MDC campus. All high school courses are AP level except for pre-calculus and research.

Students receive free tuition, fees, textbooks and, if eligible, school bus and Metrorail transportation funded by Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

SAS is located on four MDC campuses:  Homestead, Kendall, North and Wolfson.
