A: SLCSE offers a rigorous and relevant curriculum taught by dedicated and highly qualified teachers. Students work in a safe learning environment that encompasses critical thinking, collaboration, reflection and an emphasis on academic writing. As a result, SLCSE students are not intimidated by hard problems, they take healthy risks, seek out academic challenges.
Every student begins working on a personal statement for college applications in their junior year. The following year, they are placed in a Senior Seminar class where they receive mentoring in college searches, college applications, financial aid and scholarship applications. Seniors also complete a Senior Project of their choice where they are required to write an academic college-level research paper. Additionally, we offer many opportunities for students to interact with University faculty and students through guest speakers, scientist in the classroom programs, research experiences and campus visits.
Our alumni are currently enrolled at Amherst College, Carleton College, Columbia University, Lewis and Clark, Montana State University, Oberlin College, Western Washington University, University of Utah, Westminster College, Utah State University, and Salt Lake Community College.
