The National History Academy is designed for highly motivated rising 10th, 11th and 12th grade students from across the nation who already possess a basic knowledge of American history.
Applications received by December 31, 2018 are eligible for early admission decisions. A second deadline is February 15, 2019, and the final application deadline is March 31, 2019. The Academy receives many more applications than spaces available, so the earlier you submit your application, the better your chance for admission.
Students who are interested in attending should apply by submitting an application which includes GPA, test scores, two short essays, and a letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor, principal, or community leader. Some students may also need to participate in a brief phone interview.
Applications will be reviewed by a committee and judged on the maturity of response. Students whose applications are successful will be invited to register for the National History Academy.
