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.
