Rolla High School is pleased to announce that it has selected Elena Bai and Victor Nam to attend the 2019 Missouri Scholars Academy.

Students were selected based on their cumulative GPA and placement test score, as well as a review of letters of recommendation and two essays. The Missouri Scholars Academy is a three-week academic residential program for 330 of Missouri’s gifted students who are ready to begin their junior year in high school. The Academy is held each June on the campus of the University of Missouri, and administered by the University of Missouri Honors College.

The Academy reflects Missouri’s desire to strive for excellence in education at all levels. The program is based on the premise that Missouri’s gifted youth must be provided with special opportunities for learning and personal development in order for them to realize their full potential.

With a carefully selected faculty and staff, a specially designed curriculum that focuses on the liberal arts, and a variety of stimulating extracurricular activities, the academy enables students to be part of a unique learning community. The Academy provides a model that all schools can use in building or expanding their own programs for gifted students.

Rolla High School is honored to have Elena and Victor represent the school at this prestigious summer program.
