It’s Decision Day!

It’s Decision Day!
May 1 marks an important day of the year for college-bound high school seniors across the nation. By May 1, also known as National College Decision Day, seniors must accept an offer of admission and send a deposit to the school of their choice.
For Schuler Scholars it is an especially exciting time since many will be the first in their families to attend college – and not just any college – these students will attend some of the most selective colleges and universities in the nation!
Today we applaud their hard work, perseverance and success and celebrate with them as they take this next step in their lives. Congratulations Schuler Class of 2016!
In the News: North Chicago students celebrate 100% college acceptance
Three North Chicago Community High School (North Chicago, IL) students were accepted to all of the highly selective, private colleges and universities to which they applied.
“I feel proud that I am going to college and that I have my pick of colleges,” says Darius Stewart, class valedictorian at North Chicago, who is currently deciding between Emory University and the Washington University in St. Louis. Fellow peers, Jevaughn Hartley and Anthony Rodriguez, share in his excitement.
“Colorado College was one school that I fell in love with from the beginning, but I was nervous since their admission rate was around 17 percent last year,” reflects Anthony Rodriguez. “At first I thought it had been a miracle that I got in, but then it dawned on me, I had poured my heart into the application, I had participated in everything I could in high school and I realized I got in because of my hard work and resolve.” Rodriguez will be the first in his family to go to college.
The seniors credit their success to the Schuler Scholar Program, which helps high-potential yet under-served students gain access to and succeed at highly selective colleges and beyond.
