Preparation for Bates
High School Courses
In preparing for Bates, students should take the most challenging curriculum available to them; most of our entering students have completed honors or AP courses. Individual cases may vary, but our most competitive applicants will have had four years of each major at the highest level offered at their high school.
Students admitted to Bates are engaged in extra-curricular activities and their communities; they’ re involved in athletics, art, music, debate, theater, and volunteer work. They take advantage of and create opportunities during their high school years in the same way they do when they join our community.Next: Application Options
