After nearly a year of developing programming and recruiting high school seniors, the director and faculty committee selected the first cohort of 20 incoming freshmen in spring 2015. The second cohort was admitted in fall 2016, and the third in fall 2017.
Twenty incoming freshmen will be added to the Scholars Academy every year, following an extensive application process that includes essays, letters of recommendation, and a day of interviews. In fall 2018, the Scholars Academy will be at full capacity for the first time with four cohorts of Scholars.
