Groveton Students To Attend Advanced Studies Program


Groveton High School juniors Megan Allin, at right, and Jenna Randall have been chosen to attend St. Paul’s Advanced Studies Program.

Groveton High School recently announced that two juniors have been accepted to attend the prestigious St. Paul's Advanced Studies Program in Concord, N.H. Megan Allin of North Stratford and Jenna Randall of Stark will be the first students to attend this summer program from Groveton in several years. Allin is currently ranked third and Randall is ranked first out of the 37 students in their class.

The Advanced Studies Program was founded in 1957 by St. Paul's School to provide talented New Hampshire public and parochial high school students with challenging educational opportunities otherwise unavailable to them. The summer session stresses academic and personal growth, as students learn to live together and share in the school community. The program is entirely residential, and the classwork is supplemented by athletics, participatory Chapel services, weekend social activities, and musical organizations.

Summer school bands and a cappella singing groups are usually formed each year. Other activities, such as plays, open-mike performances, literary magazines, swing dancing, and chess matches are also common, based on the particular interests and talents of each summer's group. The 2015 summer session runs from June 19--July 26.
