Kirby School offers four intensive path (IP) curriculum options to high school students with a passion for the humanities, science and technology, languages, or the arts. Graduation requirements for students in these pathways differ from the General Path, exceeding the UC entry requirements, providing additional subject matter exposure, contact time with faculty, and mentorship opportunities. Completion of the program is noted on the student's transcript.

The HIP Program allowed me to pursue my academic interests beyond the classroom, opening my eyes to new fields of inquiry, methods of study and also taught me to be proactive in taking charge of my education.Alumnus, Class of '18
