The Herberger Young Scholars Academy (HYSA) offers an accelerated, integrated, supportive, and highly individualized educational experience. Within our highschool program, many of our highly gifted students have achieved greatly within an academic context and by their junior and senior years are ready for advanced or specialized support to be their most productive and successful selves in college and beyond. As an Arizona State University (ASU) early entry program, we believe providing mentorships with research professors at ASU gives our students advanced educational opportunities commensurate with their abilities, strengths and interests.
With the goal of preparing students to reach their full potential in college, HYSA’s mentorship program is designed to help Mentees enhance their skills in:
- Personal and leadership development
We believe that Mentees, within a collaborative and cooperative mentorship program, will excel at academics while reaching their full intellectual, mental, social and emotional potential. Furthermore, participation in a committed long term mentor-mentee relationship may positively contribute to potential admission into Barrett, The Honors College at ASU and other top universities.
