The Pre-Admissions Series Program is a program for high-achieving students who are seriously considering attending the Governor’s School for Science and Technology. The PAS series is comprised of informational sessions, which taken together, will provide guidance to prospective GSST parents and students on how students can prepare themselves in 9th and 10th grade to gain acceptance and achieve success at both GSST and a competitive college.
Students can apply to the PAS in January of their 8th or 9th grade year. To apply, students should complete an application (you will need to create a PowerSchool account). The application deadline is MARCH 1, 2021. Admission is highly competitive. Test scores, teacher recommendations, and course grades are used to determine which students will be invited to participate in the PAS during their 9th and 10th grade years. Designated PAS students will take prerequisite courses offered in their high schools and will participate in a variety of activities that will acquaint them with the GSST. If students and their parents decide that the GSST is a good match for their interests, they will submit a formal application to the GSST in their 10th grade year. Please note that acceptance into the PAS does not guarantee acceptance into the GSST, but active participation in PAS will be considered in the final GSST selection process.
