The Clarkson School provides exceptional high school age students with a full academic year of residency-based interdisciplinary education, typically before they would have graduated high school.
Students are considered first-year undergraduates, taking a full course load alongside other Clarkson University freshmen. Since Clarkson School students enter Clarkson University as fully matriculated first-year students, they have access to all university facilities, participate in clubs/organizations, can join varsity sports teams, and earn up to 32 college credits.
Students who finish the academic year in good standing may automatically continue as sophomores at Clarkson, or move on to other top colleges and universities around the country, taking the college credits earned for evaluation.
