• Application Process 

    The selection committee of the ARCH Program will assess the online application (or the hard copy equivalent) on 1-10 scale. Completed applications (items 1-3 on the checklist below) automatically receive a 10. The teacher letter of recommendation (item 4 on the checklist below) will be scored 0-10 using a rubric, and essays (item 5 on the checklist below) will be scored together using a rubric on a 1-10 scale. Total points available with all application requirements is 30. 

    Interviews: All candidates that submit the online application, the letter of recommendation, and the two essays will be granted an interview regardless of score status.  Interviews will be rated using a rubric on a 1-10 scale and this score will be included in the total score. The total points possible after interviewing is 40.  The 30 highest scoring candidates will earn admission into the ARCH Program. Should we have more qualified candidates than space available, a wait list will be created with priority given to the next highest score, and so on.
