SCHOOL FOR ADVANCED STUDIES TO HOLD TWO INFORMATION SESSIONS FOR 10TH-GRADERS INTERESTED IN EARLY COLLEGE ADMISSION, OCT. 2
The School for Advanced Studies (SAS), a full-time, dual-enrollment high school, will be holding information/application sessions on Saturday, Oct. 2 for the 2011-2012 school year, at two Miami Dade College (MDC) campuses: Kendall Campus, 11011 S.W. 104th St. from 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m.; and Homestead Campus, 500 College Terrace, from 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m.
All District 10th-grade students with a 3.0 grade point average are invited to apply, and may be admitted for the 11th grade upon passing the college placement test administered by MDC. Student selection is based solely on the order in which applicants meet the established criteria.
Students attending SAS complete their last two years of high school while attending MDC and, in many cases, simultaneously graduate with both a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree from MDC.
Each semester, students enroll in a minimum of three college dual-enrollment courses, taught by MDC faculty, and four high school courses, taught by SAS faculty. All high school courses are Advanced Placement courses except for pre-calculus and research. Students receive free tuition and fees, free 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.
For more information or to apply, call 305-237-0510 or visit the SAS website: http://sas.dadeschools.net.
