Located on Florida Atlantic University’s John D. MacArthur Campus at Jupiter, FAU High School - Jupiter Campus in partnership wth Max Planck Academy is the premier early university entrance high school experience in North America for STEM-focused juniors and seniors in high school.

FAU High School is the only public, accelerated pre-collegiate program that has every one of its students working towards a cost-free bachelor's degree and high school diploma simultaneously. It paves the way for students to graduate college debt-free.

 

WHY FAU HIGH SCHOOL - JUPITER CAMPUS?

High school juniors pursue a university curriculum while having opportunities to work with leading FAU and Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) researchers. Students receive intensive research training, enrichment experiences, and mentorship by FAU and MPFI faculty and post-doctoral students, leading to independent neuroscience-related research projects in MPFI-sponsored laboratories.

Graduates, beginning in 2022, will have the opportunity to earn an Academy designation with a Max Planck Academy seal on their FAU High School diploma, followed by acceptance to the FAU Max Planck Honors Program, diverse study abroad opportunities, and accelerated completion of degree programs at FAU’s Wilkes Honors College and FAU. This campus provides an unmatched early university experience, building foundations for entrance to exceptional graduate and professional programs, and the opportunity to contribute to the broader research community in South Florida and throughout the world.
