Incoming freshmen can apply for either of the following programs: 

  • XPO: Full-time, project-based learning program for students in grades 9-12. Innovators earn core credits through interdisciplinary courses and elective credits through a multitude of experiences focused on exposing, expanding and exploring. XPO provides students with a wide range of opportunities to improve the world, which culminates with an eXPOsition into a passionate learning experience during a student’s senior year.
