School for Advanced Studies Logo

Miami, September 24, 2013 - The School for Advanced Studies (SAS), a combined effort of Miami Dade College (MDC) and Miami-Dade County Public Schools, will host two information/application sessions on Saturday, Sept. 28, for the 2014-15 school year. The first session will be held at 9 a.m. at MDC’s Kendall Campus. The second will take place at 1 p.m. at MDC’s Homestead Campus. 

All current Miami-Dade County 10th graders with a minimum 3.0 unweighted grade point average are invited to apply. Program requirements include earning minimum SAS college entrance exam scores. Enrollment is limited. When the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of seats available, a random selection process will go into effect.

SAS is a full-time, nationally-recognized, dual-enrollment high school within the college, recently ranked by Newsweek magazine as the 6th Best High School in America. 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 in Arts degree.

Students are exposed to a true college experience while both their college dual-enrollment courses and their Advanced Placement (AP) high school courses take place at MDC campuses. All high school courses are AP level, except for pre-calculus and research. The program covers tuition, fees, 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.
