12th Grade IB Visual
Art Students Awarded
$300,000 in Scholarships
Through great dedication and passion, several of our 12th Grade IB students were accepted to some of the top art programs across the country, with merit scholarships totaling more than $300,000. This past year, the students produced impressive portfolios, and staged one of our most exciting IB art shows to date. Drawing inspiration from
personal experiences and extensive research, the
work produced by these students reflects not only
great technical competence but also compelling
exploration of ideas reflecting cultural and historical
awareness and personal relevance.
Highlights of their success include a 100%
acceptance rate at the Chicago Art Institute and
UCLA – each ranked among the top 5 nationwide art
Among the students accepted, Julienne Fusello
received a “Distinguished Scholar Scholarship” in the
amount of $79,200 from the Chicago Art Institute.
She was also accepted at UCLA, along with Abbey
MacPhee and Lillian Anderson. The UCLA Arts
Program only accepted 50 students this year from
among their entire applicant pool.
