Entering freshmen with high ACT/SAT scores and exceptional high school records are invited by CHP to apply for admission to the program, but any incoming or currently-enrolled freshman may ask to be considered. Acceptance is based upon such factors as standardized test scores, high school class rank and grade-point average, evidence of creative and leadership abilities as displayed in extracurricular interests and activities, the strength of the application essays, and evidence of willingness to accept CHP challenges and contribute to the program.
