  • Step 2: If the student meets eligibility requirements and there is space in the program, an invitation will be sent to the student and their parent to attend an Informational Interview with the Director and Advisor. Please note that both the student and a parent must attend.
  • Step 3: Students will be notified within a week if they will be admitted into the program. Those selected will be given student admission forms to complete by the following week.
  • Step 4: Once all the required documents are returned to our office, the student’s participation and performance will be monitored during the 60-day probationary period. If the student successfully completes the 60-day probationary period he/she will be awarded permanent admission into the program with increased opportunities.
