Additionally, we require each applicant to submit a medical questionnaire to help us prepare for our 21-day expedition. Lastly, each applicant will need to turn in a final completed high school transcript upon finishing their senior year of high school. After a student has been admitted, they may apply for financial aid and learn about available merit scholarships.

  • Wonder

Topic #2 (2-3 pages): “A rational person, even if he does not believe in God, should live his life as though God does exist, and try to believe in Him.

Topic #3 (1,000 words): Describe any painting you would like using exactly one thousand words. Please attach a copy of the chosen painting.

Topic #4 (2-3 pages): Some mathematical theories and systems were conceived as pure theory before mathematicians realized they had real-world applications (eg, non-Euclidean geometry). Does this mean that mathematics is invented? That is, is math real? If so, where does it exist?
