The Noumena Concord Review Program (TCR) provides high school students with all the tools and support they need to submit a competitive research paper to the prestigious The Concord Review, the only quarterly journal in the world to publish the academic history papers of secondary students. This journal is extremely selective with just 5% of papers getting published, and many published students go on to top American universities, having singled themselves out among their peers. At Noumena, students receive personalized support and feedback throughout the entire intensive process, meeting regularly with a teacher to brainstorm, research, draft, and finalize their work. Successful students will need to be fully committed to their projects. Although the process is challenging for even the brightest of students, those published will receive international recognition of their efforts, and all students will emerge better-prepared for college-level academia.
Noumena highly recommends this program for aspiring students who already possess an impeccable academic record and stellar scores on aptitude tests. TCR would provide that extra edge in ensuring acceptance to the best colleges America has to offer. Many of the students whose papers have been published in TCR have been accepted to Harvard (152), Yale (123), Princeton (76), Stanford (86), and many other notable universities, to mention a few. Many competitions and Olympiads exist for students interested in the sciences. However, not many exist in the humanities. Having a research paper published in TCR could play that pivotal role in aiding high school students who are not necessarily interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to achieve their ultimate academic goal: the college of their choice.
