Every eighth or ninth grade student who is a resident of Fayette County and who will complete Algebra 1 by the end of the eighth grade is welcome to apply by completing the application that can be found online August 15 - October 8th.
The 8th grade MAP Math test results will be used as the initial screen for MSTC eligibility. Once eligible, all applicants will take a nationally norm-referenced test in math and science, as well as the MSTC Admissions Test. The selection committee will issue invitations based on the results of these exams. Success in the MSTC program requires ability, interest, and maturity. The MSTC school day is one hour longer, and the academic workload is very time consuming. MSTC students are, in fact, working at the college level during all four of their high school years. This includes the privilege of having academic and personal freedoms usually reserved for college students.
