Congratulations to Kaleb, Joshua, Michaela, Oriella, Nora, and Seth on earning academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs!

The six Upper School students received the National African American Recognition Award and/or National Hispanic Recognition Award based on their academic achievements and outstanding performance on AP Exams and/or the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10.

These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process.

“We’re thrilled that our students have earned this recognition,” Director of College Counseling Em Joseph said. “We are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments. These programs help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during admissions.”

Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town.
