A final thought on admissions:

Admission to Big Brains Preparatory is competitive, but not limited to one measure. A committee comprised of faculty and administrators considers the following sources of information: the application, academic records, school visit/interview, and a student’s talents, character and leadership qualities. The Admissions Committee will consider multiple factors and determine the most suitable program for the applicant.
