High School Students

The transition from high school to college is a major turning point for young adults. At Brooks Institute, we believe in developing creative professionals with a foundation of academic knowledge, problem solving aptitude, technical expertise, and business acumen. We look forward to welcoming incoming freshmen during one of our three rolling admission periods: fall, spring or summer.

High school students interested in pursuing undergraduate degrees in Professional Photography, Graphic Design, Film, or Visual Journalism at Brooks must meet the same admission requirements as all new students and also meet the following guidelines:

  • Students must have graduated from high school with a cumulative grade point average (cGPA) of at least 2.0 (C) on a 4.0 scale from a high school recognized by the state board of education or equivalent, or passed the High School Equivalency Exam, GED (General Education Diploma) or equivalent.
  • Home-schooled students must provide a diploma/transcript recognized by the State Board of Education or equivalent, or provide proof of equivalency of high school graduation by earning a GED certificate or equivalent.
  • Applicants not meeting these minimum guidelines may be admitted by submitting official scores from ACT or SAT examinations and/or proof of completion of a minimum of 9 credit hours of completed college coursework at the 100 level or higher.

Teachers & Counselors

Teachers and counselors are valuable resources for students who face important decisions as they complete their high school education. Brooks Institute welcomes opportunities to help bridge the gap between high school and college studies by providing on-site presentations to your high school campus or arranging group tours of the Brooks Institute campuses with interested candidates.

To schedule a group tour of Brooks Institute, visit our online appointment scheduler. To plan a presentation at your high school, please contact Maggie Balderas, our vice president of admissions, at mbalderas@brooks.edu.
