School for Advanced Studies (SAS) will hold information/applications sessions for current 10th-graders and their parents on two upcoming Saturdays. SAS is a full-time, collegiate high school where students complete their last two years of high school while attending Miami Dade College (MDC) and, in most cases, simultaneously earn a high school diploma and Associate of Arts degree.
The schedule of the information/applications sessions is as follows:
· September 28 at 9 a.m.
Kendall Campus - 11011 S.W. 104th
St., Building 7, Gymnasium (this meeting is for SAS Kendall, SAS Homestead, and
SAS West Campuses).
· October 5
at 9 a.m.
North Campus - 11380 N.W. 27th Ave. in Lehman Theater (Building 5)
· October 5
at 1 p.m.
Wolfson Campus - 300 N.E. 2nd Ave. Building 1, Room 1261 second floor
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.
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. In addition, students receive free tuition, fees, textbooks and, if eligible, school bus and Metrorail transportation funded by Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
Ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the Best High School in South Florida for 2019 -2020 and designated as “A” schools by the state, SAS is located on five MDC campuses: Homestead, Kendall, North, West, and Wolfson.
