  Program Highlights


Law School Acceptance 

Since 2012, 100 percent of our students who have completed the pre-law program and applied to law school have been admitted with partial or total scholarships. These law schools include:
  • Ohio State University
  • Notre Dame
  • Washington and Lee
  • University of Toledo
  • Ohio Northern University  

The Washington Center

Students have an opportunity to work and study through The Washington Center which enables students to gain the experience needed for entry-level employment and to prepare for lives of achievement, engagement and leadership in order to shape the next generation of leaders.  


Internship Opportunities

As part of the pre-law program, students have the opportunity to intern with local and regional law offices. Students have worked directly on a variety of cases, involving criminal murder cases, business issues and real estate transactions.
