The Templeton Scholars provides opportunities for gifted high schoolers from greater Portland to undertake advanced study. Students who seek a challenging academic experience beyond their high school curriculum may enroll in regular Lewis & Clark courses with the permission of the instructor.
Credit earned through the Templeton Scholars Program can be used toward graduation from Lewis & Clark. Since policies concerning transfer credit vary among institutions, students who attend other colleges should ask the admissions office about the possible transfer of this credit. The students high school may also give credit for the courses.
