We typically enroll students in College Track by the end of the student's eighth grade year. Also, each fall, there are usually one or two openings for our sophomore and junior classes.

Our application process requires the following:

  • Completed College Track application
  • Two letters of recommendation (at least one from a teacher)
  • Completed parent/guardian release and consent forms
  • Copy of the student's prior grade report card or middle school transcript
  • Student interview
  • Our application and student interview questions focus on why interested students believe they are excellent candidates. We want to understand why students want to attend college and learn their personal and academic goals.

"In my community, more people end up on the streets because of lack of choices, mobility and opportunities that too easily leads to violence. I am fortunate enough to have choices. I challenge myself and challenge the stereotype by taking advanced placement and  honors classes."
