Students can apply to:

  • explore nanotechnology with cutting-edge tools
  • observe marine life while doing research in Florida's Sarasota Bay
  • study tropical medicine with rural indigenous communities in Costa Rica

  • investigate astronomy, physics, and astrobiology at a working observatory in the North Carolina mountains
  • pursue college-level courses in such topics as psychology, medical care, human rights advocacy, filmmaking, and more on the Duke University campus

Whatever they choose, they'll be guided by expert instructors and surrounded by other academically talented high schoolers who can help push them to new heights—and who may become lifelong friends.

Students are admitted on the basis of an online portfolio application—you can find instructions on our website.

Student Activities and Academic Organizations

National Honor Society, Bp. Martin Chapter

  • The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. To be eligible for membership students must be a junior or senior, and maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher and be of good character, and demonstrated excellence in leadership and service. Beginning with selection of students for the 2016­2017, each student must have and maintain a 3.8 cumulative GPA. A Faculty Committee reviews all student information and invites students to become members.


  • Since the first Beta Club was formed in Landrum, SC in 1934, the National Beta Club has become the nation's largest independent, non­profit, educational youth organization. The National Beta Club Mission Statement is to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students. Ninth through 12th grade student must have achieved a cumulative 3.5 grade point average for membership.

School Clubs

  • Student clubs range in activity from simple meetings at school to community service to serious investment of time and energy. They provide interested students with a means for bringing together academic, religious and personal skills in a way that is both specific and oriented toward personal development. Note that spirit clubs (e.g. cheer and dance line) are listed with athletics and student honor societies (NHS and Beta) are listed with academics.

Because of the nature of these organizations and their activities, the student fees paid as part of tuition may not cover their activities. Additional fees may be required as a condition of membership.
