How to Apply to YES

Admission and Application:

YES has an application process which includes submission of a student’s grades and application.  Young students in the program take two classes, and the application is reviewed for the particular classes to which the student is applying.  YES seeks applicants who demonstrate both academic talent and a passion for learning.  Minnesota Institute does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, gender, disability, national or ethnic origin in administration of its education policies, admission policies, or financial aid programs.

Students in grades 1 through 4 during the 2016-2017 school-year are considered for admission.  YES students are put into two groups, 1st and 2nd graders are together and 3rd and 4th graders are together.
