Miami, Sept. 12, 2019 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) School for Advanced Studies (SAS) will hold information/applications sessions for current 10th grade high school students and their parents on Saturday, Sept. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 5. SAS is a full-time, collegiate high school where students complete their last two years of high school while attending MDC and, in most cases, simultaneously earn a high school diploma and Associate in Arts degree. SAS is a unique collaboration between MDC and Miami-Dade County Public Schools and is consistently ranked among the best high schools in the nation.

The schedule of the information/applications sessions are as follows: 

Saturday, Sept. 28, at 9 a.m.

Kendall Campus, Bldg. 7, Gymnasium, 11011 SW 104 St. in Building 7, Gymnasium

(this meeting is for SAS Kendall, SAS Homestead, and SAS West Campuses).

Saturday, Oct. 5. at 9 a.m.

North Campus, Lehman Theater (Bldg. 5), 11380 N.W. 27 Ave.

Saturday, Oct. 5, at 1 p.m.

Wolfson Campus, Room 1261, (Bldg. 1, Second Floor), 300 N.E. Second Ave.

All current Miami-Dade County 10th graders with a minimum unweighted 3.0 grade point average are invited to apply.  The students may become eligible for admission upon satisfying all program requirements, including earning minimum SAS college entrance exam scores. Enrollment is limited. If the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of seats available, a random selection process will be used to admit students.

SAS welcomes applicants from all public, private, parochial, and charter schools in Miami-Dade County. Additionally, many home-schooled students choose SAS to complete their secondary studies and begin their transition to college.

Students can obtain a true college experience since both their college dual-enrollment courses and their Advanced Placement (AP) high school courses take place on the MDC campus. All high school courses are AP level except for Pre-calculus and Research.  In addition, students receive free tuition, fees, textbooks and, if eligible, school bus and Metrorail transportation funded by Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

Ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the Best High School in South Florida for 2019 -2020, SAS is located on five MDC campuses: Homestead, Kendall, North, West, and Wolfson. SAS has recently been designated as “The Collegiate High School” for Miami-Dade County and all five campuses have been designated as “A” schools by the state of Florida.
