Academically gifted high school upperclassmen get a head start on their college careers by choosing two courses from a full complement of University of Mississippi offerings. In most cases, these courses, which are taught by university faculty and which result in an average of six hours of transferable college credit, also include current Ole Miss underclassmen. An accompanying noncredit class helps students explore their academic and career interests while also learning about the college selection process. Boys and girls devote some afternoon time to creative, academic and athletic activities, and weekends provide opportunities for various excursions and entertainment options.
