The McMullen Scholars Program is a highly competitive, integrated program of study that provides a well-rounded education to select students at Calvert Hall College.  The program provides an experience that challenges and stimulates students through rigorous courses, unique cultural and academic field experiences, and original research opportunities.  Students engage the accelerated content of Honors and Advanced Placement courses in English, Social Studies, Classical and Modern Languages, Mathematics and the Sciences. Scholars are required to take additional courses in Honors Latin and the Humanities.
The McMullen Scholars Program prepares gifted students for distinguished achievement in higher education and beyond. With an awareness that we live in an increasingly global community, the McMullen Scholars program develops the communication skills and cultural appreciation that are the foundations for educational and professional success. All McMullen Scholars receive a St. John Baptist de La Salle Academic Scholarship.

The McMullen Capstone Experience

The Program culminates with the McMullen Capstone Experience, a substantial, independent, research-based project within a discipline of deep personal interest to the Scholar.  Mentorship within the Capstone Experience includes personal contact with professional experts in their field, individualized support during the university discernment and application process, and analysis of potential career interests.  During their final semester at Calvert Hall, Scholars offer an oral and visual presentation of their Capstone to a large audience.
