The fully residential ASP is built to mimic the academic community of a college. Students, interns, and faculty study, eat, play, and live together in single-sex dormitories. The program makes use of virtually every facility at the School, from the Astronomy Center and the Engineering Lab, to the crew docks on Turkey Pond.
This depth of shared experience – with students from 70 high schools across the state – allows for academic experimentation, personal growth, and connecting with the natural world throughout the 2,000 acres of the grounds. Graduates of the ASP know as they enter their senior year of high school that they are prepared academically and socially to excel in college.
For summer 2021 we will be offering a choice of two programs:
ASP New Hampshire Leadership Institute (June 21 – July 2, online)
In this dynamic two-week online program, you will get to know the leaders and organizations building tomorrow’s solutions to today’s challenges in New Hampshire and beyond. 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. Explore the topic of your choice in a collegiate-level course taught by outstanding faculty in incredible facilities designed to promote experiential learning.
