The Keystone Honors Academy builds a creative learning community through programs that enhance the University’s scholarly environment and provide opportunities for professional growth and cultural awareness.
Helping our scholars prepare for graduate school is another benefit of membership in the Academy.
School visits, support for entrance exam preparatory courses, workshops on essay writing, and ongoing assistance with applications and school selection are among the opportunities to lay the groundwork for admission to graduate school. Cheyney also hosts an annual Graduate School Fair, attracting representatives from graduate programs from across the region. In addition, scholarships are available to students who place successfully in the Bond Hill affiliated programs.
