Students apply in the fall of their junior year for attendance in the summer before their senior year of high school. Application materials and deadlines can be found on this page. There is no application fee required to apply to the ASP!
Before completing the formal application process, please read the ASP Viewbook carefully and consult with your principal or guidance counselor. It is recommended that you attend one of the online ASP information sessions. For summer 2021 we will be offering a choice of two programs:

Be exposed to new ideas and expanded possibilities for your future. Build relationships with peers from around the state in small discussion-based classes. Generate strong essays to get a leg up on the college application process with small-group and 1:1 writing instruction and participate in a college advising series that will build your confidence in navigating the college process.
ASP In Residence (June 21 – July 2, online; July 3 – 25 at SPS) Following the ASP New Hampshire Leadership Institute, move to the grounds of St. Paul’s School for three weeks of living, learning, and playing in community.
