Who Can Apply?

SSJP is offered to 90 high school students from our eight partnering schools. Students that are accepted are interested in pursuing a science, medical, research, or health career. Students in the program are ambitious, mature, focused and want to learn!

Students don't have to get straight A's in their classes in order to be accepted to SSJP, but they do need to take their academic success very seriously. Being an SSJP student is a big commitment. If a student is involved in sports, school committees and clubs or community activities, he/she might not have enough time to commit to SSJP. Students who apply to the program are encouraged to be realistic about their schedule, academic workload and current activity involvement.

  • Boston Latin Academy
  • Community Academy of Science and Health
  • Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers
  • Fenway High School
  • John D. O'Bryant School of Math and Science
