Hey guys, so I'm interested in applying to The Mountain School of Milton Academy, a semester boarding school. It's where "high school juniors spend four months in Vermont living and working on [an] organic farm. Students take five classes, take care of the gardens and livestock, and live in small houses with their friends and teachers." If I go, it would probably be the fall semester of my junior year because I would want to take the SAT in the Spring at home.
I come from a competitive public school in NYC. In junior year, I'll probably be taking the following APs: AP Chem, AP English lang, AP U.S. History, AP Psych, and maybe AP Macro. This is their curriculum listing: Mountain School of Milton ~ Curriculum
The classes I would be missing out on are AP Chem, AP Macro, and AP Psych as they don't offer it. I would also be missing out on a language study, as I learn a very obscure language at school (Russian).
Money isn't that big of an issue-- the only thing is the limited curriculum and course offerings. But environmental science is truly my passion; a large majority of my extracurriculars, internships/work experience, and summer programs are centered around environmental science.
So I guess I'm in a bit of a pickle here. Is it worth it to give up three APs during junior year for the Mountain School?
Thanks. Really appreciate the advice.
