Honors Fellows Days

Prospective Fellows will attend interviews on one of the two weekends, typically held in the early Spring semester. These are important opportunities for us to get to know you and for you to get to know Lyon. For this reason, we have scheduled time for you to visit with current Fellows, campus tours to familiarize you with our campus, and roundtable discussions to demonstrate the kind of learning community we pursue at Lyon.

We typically interview 100-125 prospective students for roughly 25 spots in the incoming class of Fellows. Students who qualify with a 28 ACT or better and with a high school GPA of 3.5 or better will be invited to register. Fellows weekends have limited capacity, so we encourage you to register early.

Honors fellows days for Fall 2021 will be announced soon.
