Students who have demonstrated scholarship in science and math and desire an academically challenging experience in science, math, computer science, technology or engineering are strong candidates.

The parent or guardian of a student must complete the online application and submit the student's first semester report card for the application to be complete.  The online application will be available in March 1, 2023.

Applications are not complete until the first semester (Q1 & Q2) report card is received for the current 2022-2023 school year. 

A limited amount of need-based financial aid is available to residents of South Carolina. To apply, complete the financial aid section of the application before April 19. Need-based assistance is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
