These twenty-seven seniors represent 23% of the Class of 2017! (The average in Illinois is 10% of a class.) Selection for this honor is based on a combination of a student’s ACT and/or SAT test score(s), GPA, and class rank at the end of his/her junior year, unless he/she scores at or above the 95th percentile in Illinois on the ACT and/or SAT test(s). While students do not receive a monetary award, they are able to list this prestigious honor on both college applications and scholarship applications.
Please join us in congratulating our Illinois State Scholars – their dedication to achieving academic success has most certainly paid off!
