School of Advanced Studies at Miami Dade College to Host College Forum for High School Students

Miami, May 10, 2016 – The School of Advanced Studies (SAS) at Miami Dade College (MDC) will host a SAS College Forum for high school students Saturday, May 21, featuring representatives from the University of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Johns Hopkins University, Dartmouth College, and Cornell University. This event is free.

High school students interested in applying to these top tier universities are encouraged to attend. The event will provide valuable insight into the complex admissions process, learn what makes an application competitive for admission, meet directors and assistant directors of the participating admissions staffs, and learn more about the rigorous academics and financial aid available. The forum will include a distribution of literature by each of the participating schools, a panel discussion and Q & A session.

SAS is a combined effort of Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) and MDC. It was ranked as the Best High School in Florida for 2015 and 2016, according to Niche, a ranking and review site focused on schools, colleges, and neighborhoods. Students attending SAS complete their last two years of high school while attending MDC and, in most cases, simultaneously graduate with both a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree.

SAS is located on five MDC campuses: Homestead, Kendall, North, West, and Wolfson.
