APEX Scholars is an alternative admissions program designed to bridge the gap between high school and college. The program is based on the philosophy that students who are interested, committed, and willing to invest the time and effort, can succeed academically when provided with appropriate support services.
APEX Scholars provides an academic bridge to the successful transition from high school to undergraduate studies at Wayne State University. In this quest, we will strengthen the cognitive abilities of students; encourage a thirst for knowledge; model and demand a disciplined approach to learning; and enhance student achievement by assuring access to a committed staff that provides effective supportive services, leading to a structured path of academic success.
APEX Scholars will be known by their ability, led by conscience, driven to succeed in the face of challenge, determined to serve others, and accomplish much with confidence and humility.
