Launched in 2002, the Standish Honors program has grown from an initial cadre of 32 students to more than 300. The program emphasizes not only academics in the form of small, highly interactive seminars and major research projects/theses, but also stresses community service.
The benefits for students include:
• Developing critical and creative thinking
• Growing in the ability to gather, synthesize and analyze evidence in making reasoned and informed judgments
• Appreciating cultural diversity
• Honing written and oral communication skills
