Applicants must be high school juniors in the top 10 percent of their class who have completed second-year algebra before the program begins. In addition, they should take the PSAT or ACT before April. No previous computer experience is necessary.
The two-week program entitles students to two semester hours of university credit upon enrollment at BYU. Students will be taught by BYU faculty members, who provide a rigorous and demanding university-level course in BYU's nationally-ranked undergraduate computer science department. The hands-on training helps students become literate in the Pascal programming language.
BYU has offered the Advanced High School Studies Program since 1983, and 95 percent of its participants respond positively to the demanding course.
Last year, the 200 students attending the clinic came from around the United States, as well as from Canada, Mexico, West Germany and American Samoa.
