About this Program: The Advanced Sessions are pre-college courses offered to students age 15-19 who have completed one year of high school science, preferably biology or chemistry (though these are not required). These two-week sessions are of a more analytical nature, and students are expected to prepare laboratory reports and analysis of their field work. We offer students the chance to explore their collegiate options during the advanced sessions with college tours and meetings with the Jackson Lab and Mount Desert Island Biological Lab, both of which offer internships to high school and college age students. Several of our AIO students have participated over the years. The caliber of our students is so well respected that College of the Atlantic, in Bar Harbor, Maine, has begun offering $10,000/year scholarships to any AIO student who is accepted into their program with a recommendation from one of our Directors. Since 2012, AIO has offered students who attend the first Advanced Program session the opportunity to receive college credit for the program through the University of Maine Machias. Students who are applying to receive College Credit for the first Advanced Program session will incur additional fees (base fee of $2,840 plus $504 -2016 rate- for the 4 credit course at the University of Maine Machias: rates for 2017 forthcoming). The tuition for the non-college credit 2017 Advanced Program is $2,740. Please review our College Credit page for more information on this program or our Tuition and Fees page for complete tuition details.
