Gifted high school seniors, and in some instances, juniors, may take first-year or introductory-level courses during the academic year and in the summer at King's College. The purpose is to orient talented local high school students to the college environment and to provide each student with an extensive, challenging experience in an academic discipline.
To qualify for the program, high school seniors should be in the top 20% of their class, and juniors in the top 10% of their class. Students need to complete the application/registration form for the program, and have their guidance counselor recommend them by signing the form and sending it along with a copy of their transcript, to the Young Scholars Program at King’s College. Students can obtain the application/registration form from their local guidance offices.
The college also offers a limited of classes via Distance Education for students who live outside the local area. These classes are offered via videoconferencing through the high schools, so students would need to check with their high schools to see if they have the capability to receive a class via videoconferencing.
