Qualified high school students in the Santa Barbara area are nominated by their school guidance counselors or principals to participate in YSP. Students may NOT enroll directly in the program. To be considered for YSP, students must be mature, capable of handling university-level course work, be pursuing rigorous college-preparatory study and be performing at an exceptionally high level.
Strong candidates are students who have exhausted what is available in one or more subject areas at their school or who wish to study a subject not available at their high school. Qualified home schooled students should contact the PaCE help desk for special directions and guidelines regarding nominations.
