Visiting Young Scholars Program

Description: Saint Louis University's Visiting Young Scholars (VYS) Program provides the opportunity for a select group of current high school students to begin their college experience in regular lower division Saint Louis University classes on the SLU campus, prior to high school graduation. / / The VYS Program attempts to bridge the gap between high school honors courses, AP classes or dual credit opportunities such as the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program, and full-time college student status. The VYS Program attempts to provide these select students the option of advancing academically prior to entering SLU as a full time student by participating in this dual enrollment program.

Community Partnerships:

  • Ladue Horton Watkins High School
