HICKORY — Lenoir-Rhyne University will hold an information session at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25, for high school juniors and their parents interested in the University’s High School Scholars Academy. The session will be held in room 213 of the McCrorie Center on the L-R campus.
The High School Scholars Academy, which began in 2007, is designed for high school students who wish to pursue a more advanced academic program for their senior year of high school. Students selected for the program will have the opportunity to enroll in English IV Honors plus three college classes in the fall and AP English (or an approved online class) plus three college classes in the spring.
Applications for the 2013-2014 school year are due in February 2013. First preference for admission will be given to students enrolled in the Catawba County, Hickory Public, or Newton-Conover school systems. If space is available, the University will also consider students from private schools, home schools, and other school systems.
Factors considered for admission include high school GPA, courses taken in high school, SAT, ACT, PSAT or PLAN scores, and high school or community involvement.
The information sessions do not require advance registration. If you have questions, please contact Mary Ann Gosnell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-328-7300. Additional information about the High School Scholars Academy can be found online at
