STAND OUT IN THE COLLEGE ADMISSION PROCESS
- An Honors Academy diploma shows your willingness to take on the most rigorous courses available to you. Admissions officers are not impressed by straight A’s when they are all earned in easy courses. Colleges look for students that challenge themselves with a curriculum.
- Enhance your competitive edge for scholarships by improving your SAT score, G.P.A., and class rank.
- STEM and elective pathways enhance admissions to engineering & technology, pre-law, pre-med, and business programs.
