High Ability Program


Dear Prospective High Ability Student:

The High Ability Program at Grambling State University is designed for high school juniors (rising seniors) who have exemplified outstanding academic achievement.  The High Ability Program provides the participating high school student with the opportunity to enroll at Grambling State University and earn six hours of college credit.   The program has a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) focus, requiring the completion of a mathematics course (3 credit hours) and the completion of a science project.  Each participant will select the second course based on his/her interest.  Courses that High Ability Students have chosen include photography, public speaking, art appreciation, and biology.  

Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.   You will make new friends, enhance your mathematics & quantitative reasoning skills, and develop skills that will be beneficial when you begin your freshman year in college.   

The deadline for applying to the High Ability Program has been extended until June 1, 2014.   Each application will be reviewed upon receipt of the complete packet and notified of acceptance. The High Ability Program will officially begin on Sunday, June 29, 2014.
