The educators of the Bay Area Tutoring Summit seek two to three high school sophomores to join each fall’s class of BATS Scholars. For students in the high school class of 2022 (current sophomores), the next admission season will begin January 1, 2020. The application deadline will be in mid-March.
For now, please read about the BATS Scholars program and learn more about our members on this website. We welcome sophomores to consider applying as early as they can after January 1—but also to take the necessary time to complete the application thoughtfully and carefully.
Application materials will be posted on this page by January 1, 2020.
Candidates will be assessed in terms of:
We provide top-flight, comprehensive educational support to students who might not otherwise receive it. We encourage those from groups traditionally underrepresented in elite education to apply.
Commitment to Education
Candidates must be committed to high school and college success and willing to receive several hours per week of academic assistance outside of the school day. Families of BATS Scholars support them in these efforts.
Candidates must already be succeeding in their high school program and be ready to take their intellectual development to the next level.
BATS Scholars contribute to the community through their example and their civic participation.
