Best schools if graduating early
After doing a lot of independent studies over the two years or so, it looks like this year I'll be doing a combo of home school/college and graduating early. I'll be two years early for the state where I live (PA), but only one year young for the cut-off in others (like NY).
I've attended a small, religious school all my life, and am looking for an environment that will give me a strong sense of community and social structure. I am thinking at this point of going to a smaller school (<3000).
I want to study math in college, and possibly music composition/theory as well. This year I expect to take Calc 2 and 3 (hopefully!) at the college level.
I am one of four kids, so cost is an issue. I'm hoping for scholarship money, probably for academics. Based on the scores last year, I expect to be a National Merit Scholar. I also have high SAT scores and GPA.
Do you know of any schools that would roughly fit these academic, social, and financial criteria? I would also like to stay within a day's drive of PA if possible. My parents and I are excited (but also apprehensive!) about the college search.
Thanks for your help!
