How to Apply
Applying to A Better Chance is a three-step, 18-month process. For example, if a student is currently in the 7th grade, he/she would be applying for the 9th grade. There is a lot to do, so candidates should begin as early as possible; late applications are not accepted.
At A Better Chance, we recognize that students come from different backgrounds and educational opportunities so each application is evaluated on its own merit. We only select Scholars who we believe can thrive at our competitive Member Schools.
The new application for school year 2015-2016 is now available. If you are unable to attend an information session, we invite you to watch one below.
