About MYLES

Our Mission

MYLES of Science is canceled for Summer 2020 due to precautions regarding the COVID-19 virus, and in keeping with Montreat College’s response to the virus. Though these are challenging times, please do not stop learning about and investigating the natural world in a safe and responsible way!

To expand high school students’ interest in science and science-related careers through living, studying, and hiking in the natural world.

Since 2005, we have provided a field-based environmental training and research program to high school students. With our partners, we offer six-day, expeditionary science trips. Students hike and backpack to a variety of ecosystems and collect important scientific data in the most visited national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Students work with multiple, dynamic professional scientists conducting and presenting field-based research.
