Anderson Scholars Entrepreneurship Concentration

A Unique Opportunity for University School Freshmen
The Anderson Scholars Program enables a student to pursue his passion with structure, rigor, and depth throughout his high school career. With guidance from an advisor, an Anderson Scholar will participate in an individualized program that connects course work with significant experiences outside the walls of the school.

In his freshman year, an interested student submits an application and is interviewed. If he is selected as an Anderson Scholar candidate, he will pursue an individualized program for three years beginning his sophomore year. The Anderson Scholars program is designed to give additional context and substance to University School curricular requirements.
