Mass Academy and WPI
As a Mass Academy senior, I am dual-enrolled at WPI with the same academic status as an incoming freshman. The flexible and diverse array of courses has allowed me to further my understanding of mathematics and biology through classes that would otherwise not be open until a typical junior or senior year of college. These include focused classes such as operations research and virology, as well as more general classes like cell biology and probability.
I completed my junior year down at Mass Academy, where I took the standard set of courses in Mathematical Modeling, Physics, French Immersion, STEM, STW (Scientific and Technical Writing), Humanities, and Computer Science. Because I had taught myself calculus prior to arriving at the Academy, I was able to take the Physics with Calculus track and also completed the Multivariable Calculus course at WPI in May. Although I am currently taking courses at WPI, my status is that of a Mass Academy senior and I continue to participate in Mass Academy's various clubs and teams. This year, I am returning to lead both the Programming and CyberPatriot teams as a co-captain.
