Students making slime for Halloween

Biotech Institute Application 
The application deadline for the Class of 2027 was at 11:59 PM on 2/13/24. We are no longer accepting applications. 
Student Profile:
We will accept 54 science-minded students from the class of 2027 to join our competitive, three-year cross-curricular program in August 2024.
Many of our students have aspirations to work in a field of science or medicine, while some aspire to go into fields such as law, marketing, business, or finance. Through our program, these students learn how the biotechnology industry is supported by these professions. We also have students who aspire to be educators, computer scientists, filmmakers, and performing artists. Whatever path they take, their science minds will serve them well.
Prerequisite for applying to BTI: 
Only 9th-grade students may apply. To be eligible to enroll in the program, students must earn a C- or higher in their Biology class each semester. The same goes for students enrolled in Algebra. Students taking Geometry or more advanced math classes have met the math prerequisite.

Mid-May: Deadline for accepted students to commit to the program
Commitment to the program:
Campus-wide, schedule changes will not be permitted after mid-May; therefore, students who accept our invitation to enroll in BTI will not be able to drop the program over the summer or in August when we return. Additionally, students who join the program are making a minimum of a one-year commitment.
