School for Advanced Studies to Hold Information/Application Sessions for 10th-Grade Students, Sept. 23

School for Advanced Studies (SAS), a full-time, collegiate high school, will be holding information/application sessions on Saturday, Sept. 23 for the 2018-2019 school year at two Miami Dade College (MDC) campuses:

  • Kendall Campus, 11011 S.W. 104th St. at 9 a.m. in Building 7, Gymnasium; and
  • Homestead Campus, 500 College Terrace, (Homestead, FL) at 1 p.m. Room F222.


Meetings for the North, West, and Wolfson Campuses will occur in October (specific dates, rooms, and times available on SAS website).


“Niche” magazine ranked SAS at the Best High School in South Florida for 2018.


All current Miami-Dade County 10th-graders with a minimum unweighted 3.0 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. If the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of seats available, a random selection process will be used to admit students. 

 

SAS welcomes applicants from all public, private, parochial and charter schools in Miami-Dade County. Additionally, many home-schooled students choose SAS to complete their secondary studies and begin their transition to college. 

 

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 degree (100 percent of the SAS Class of 2017). 

 

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 five MDC campuses: Homestead, Kendall, North, West (Doral) and Wolfson. SAS has recently been designated as "The Collegiate High School" for Miami-Dade County and all five campuses have been designated as "A" schools by the state of Florida.
