Global Junior Scholars

Vista Heights Middle School is proud to offer the Global Junior Scholars Program. Junior Scholars is a middle school program that embeds strategies in the curriculum to prepare students for the rigor of high school A-G, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate courses. It also provides students with the skills and opportunities to not only effectively transition to the high school Scholars program (Global Scholars at Canyon Springs High School), but successfully transition to a college or university of their choice.
In order to apply to the Junior Scholars program, students must be identified as “potential” Junior Scholar students and invited to apply to the program. Potential Junior Scholar students must meet one or more of the following:

 Excel academically in elementary school or middle school
 Meet or Exceed Standards in the State Assessment (CAASPP)
 Excel in math
 Be recommended by their teacher
Please view the brochures (links to the right on desktops or at the bottom of the page on mobile devices) in order to learn more about the Vista Heights Global Junior Scholars program.
