Our four students will be attending Yale from July 25 to August 9 as participants in the Ivy Scholars Program. The following information, explaining the program, is taken from the Ivy Scholars website (www.yale.edu/ivyscholars).
ABOUT THE IVY SCHOLARS PROGRAM
The Program is designed for exceptional high school student leaders, regardless of previous training in public speaking or debate, who aim to become senior leaders in their home countries whether they be future presidents, prime ministers, CEOs, corporate directors, public service or civic leaders. The goal of the Program is to study and apply the lessons of the world's greatest strategists and leaders spanning over 2,500 years to contemporary and future issues of the 21st century.
This Program is open to highly qualified rising juniors and seniors in high school (the two grades prior to entrance to university level study) and includes lectures by Yale faculty and distinguished scholars from other Ivy League universities, seminars on Grand Strategy, mentoring sessions with distinguished alumni and rising professionals, and intensive workshops dedicated to developing skills essential for leadership such as public speaking, specialized writing formats, networking, social and professional etiquette, study skills, time management and more.
The Ivy Scholars Program attracts the most talented high school leaders from across the United States and around the world. Our 2008 class included high school leaders from the United States, Canada, European Union, Asia, and Southeast Asia.
