Advanced Studies

Philosophy

Students who have completed or are enrolled in the most advanced course VES offers in a particular subject area and seek to explore a related topic in greater depth may be approved to pursue Advanced Studies Credit in that discipline. Advanced Studies students have completed a rigorous application process, gained the support of a faculty mentor, and set their own deadlines and goals as they develop a project to present to the VES community. Grades are based not only on the final project and presentation but also on their process, especially their ability to work independently and display mature habits of mind as they pursue their goals.

Honor. Rigor. Community. Relationships. Individual Attention.
