Application Process


The Alamance-Burlington School System Honors Institute at Elon is a collaborative effort between the school system and university to provide a summer enrichment experience for talented and motivated students focused on Engaged Citizenship. Rising high school seniors are eligible to apply for the three-week institute, which will meet daily on the campus of Elon University from June 11 to June 29, 2018. 

Successful applicants would be those students who are motivated and prepared for college level work. In addition, they would have a track record of outstanding school performance, above average achievement, and reading ability above or well above grade level.

The values of the ABSS Honors Institute at Elon will mirror those of the supporting institutions which include, but are not limited to: 
  1. Respect for a diversity of opinions, experiences, and responses to the world; 
  2. Responsible citizenship with an emphasis on equity, justice, and tolerance;
  3. A commitment to success for all;
  4. Integrity, both personal and collective.
