Lewiston Porter High SchoolAcademy of International Business & FinanceTHE APPLICATION PROCESS
There is an application process for admission into the Academy of International Business & Finance. Applications will be available to all incoming Freshmen in January of the school year. Students demonstrating a high level of interest in the program, dedication to their studies, and a well-rounded student life will be considered.
Students must provide:
- A completed application
- A 250-500 word essay on “Why I would like to be a member of the Academy.”
- One (1) recommendation from a teacher
- One (1) non-academic recommendation from a coach, club advisor, community members, etc.
Students must also participate in an interview. We understand that for many students this is the first time they have ever had to answer questions about themselves in a formal way. But they shouldn’t worry! While this is a great opportunity for us to learn more about each student applicant, we make the sure the process is an easy and comfortable one for our future members!
All freshmen are encouraged to apply and interview for the program. We are looking for a diverse group of students who are interested in having a unique high school experience, and who want to gain the skills that will aid their future academic and career success.
Students will be notified by letter in February of their acceptance.
Parents and accepted students should then look forward to an invitation to our Moving Up Breakfast where you can meet Academy upperclassmen and learn more about what to expect from Academy membership starting in the students’ sophomore year.
