Students and teacher in a group shot

The School for Advanced Studies (SAS) is another shining facet of MDC’s continuing tradition of excellence.

Students attending SAS complete their last two years of high school while they obtain an Associate in Arts degree from MDC. Located at five MDC campuses (Homestead, Kendall, North, West, and Wolfson), SAS takes pride in its diverse student population, nurturing learning environment, and commitment in providing all students with a rich and rigorous liberal arts education with many of its students specializing in STEM.

SAS was named the fifth best high school in the United States and the best high school in Florida, in the 2021 rankings released by U.S. News & World Report. With that ranking, SAS maintained its position at the top of the annual list. In 2020, it was ranked best high school in Florida and the fourth best high school in the nation. A combined effort between MDC and Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS), SAS is a part of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools district.
