The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) has announced the names of this year’s students honored as Illinois State Scholars for 2016-2017. The State Scholar program recognizes Illinois high school students for outstanding academic achievement. Universal High School is pleased to announce that 15 students have been named Illinois State Scholars.
Students ranking in the top 10 percent of the state’s graduating high school seniors have been named State Scholars. Selection is based on ACT and/or SAT I test score results and/or students’ individual class rank at the end of the junior year of high school. While the program does not provide a monetary award, the designation as a State Scholar can be listed on applications for college admission and scholarships.
Congratulations Universal School Students and Faculty, 15/43 seniors; 35% of the senior class have received this recognition.
