Welcoming. Eye-opening. Transformative.

Since 1957, talented and engaged rising seniors from public and parochial schools around New Hampshire have come together for the Advanced Studies Program at St. Paul’s School, a unique, immersive, and transformative program that is equal parts academic exploration, college preparation, and summer fun.

The ASP is about diving deep into thought-provoking classes in which you encounter real-world problems and relevant ideas. It is about developing friendships with like-minded peers from across the state, being exposed to new activities and new career paths. It is about getting a jump start that will leave you feeling confident about the college application process.

In today’s social, political, and environmental climate, New Hampshire - and the world - needs curious minds, big thinkers, and active citizens. What inspires you? Whether it is artificial intelligence, entrepreneurship, law and government, or the visual or performing arts, the ASP offers you a unique opportunity. It will be a summer to remember, a summer that just might change your life.

Feel free to contact Alisa Barnard, director of advanced studies program, if you have any questions.
