Required Classes / Language Requirements

posted in: 2019 Application
We are often asked to recommend specific classes for high school students to increase their chances of admission. We do not have required classes for admission but consider an ideal preparation to include calculus, physics, chemistry, biology, and four years of English.

We want you to take the most challenging coursework available to you at your high school, treating both AP and IB coursework as college level and the highest level of rigor in high schools. You should take challenging coursework, particularly in math and science, and it is not about quantity, but about the quality of courses. 

We offer helpful advice on academics and extracurricular activities in how to Prepare for MIT.
