Junior Scholars Program for High School Students
The Junior Scholars Program is a six-week college credit residential program for academically talented high school students (year 11 students in a 12 year system or years 11 and 12 in a 13 year system). Since 1982, over 1400 students have enrolled in the Junior Scholars Program. The University is committed to diversity in all of its programs, and the Junior Scholars Program reflects this commitment in the ethnic, cultural, economic, and geographic diversity of its students. Junior Scholars embrace this diversity, forming a strong community spirit and lasting friendships.
Junior Scholars select two courses from a list of more than forty classes offered by over thirty departments. These are regular undergraduate courses, and Junior Scholars typically out-perform many undergraduates enrolled in the same classes. Last year, for example, 44% of the grades awarded to Junior Scholars in Miami courses were in the A range. 31% of the Junior Scholars received all A's in their Miami courses, and, 54% of the Junior Scholars received at least an A and a B in their Miami courses. The Program G.P.A. was 3.25 on a 4.00 scale.
The Junior Scholars Program includes more than academic studies, however. In addition to course work, Scholars attend a series of seminars on topics such as time management and study skills, college admission, financial aid, interpersonal relationships, cultural awareness, and alcohol awareness. A full schedule of social and recreational activities complements the scholarly parts of the program. Students and staff participate in swimming, ice skating, broomball, and volleyball, and have use of Miami's Recreational Sports Center. Last year the Scholars visited Kings Island and the Cincinnati Zoo. They also had picnics, VCR movies, a parents weekend talent show, and a faculty appreciation dinner. Junior Scholars usually organize a hall government that plans several all-hall events, including dances and a Junior Scholars memory book.
