The Class of 2014 faced ever-tightening acceptance rates at selective colleges and universities. Stanford University experi- enced a 5.1 percent admit rate this year, followed by Harvard’s admit rate of 5. 9 percent. For the first time, both UCLA and UC Berkeley experienced admit rates of under 20 percent.
Many other colleges experienced tightening admit rates
this year. For example, Kenyon College experienced a 60
percent increase in applications. The selective college
admissions climate is truly a global competition – colleges
seek the world’s best and brightest.
Despite the odds, our 85 members of the Class of 2014
received an outstanding array of selective college admis-
sions, including acceptances at Harvard, Yale, Princeton,
Columbia ( 2 students), Stanford ( 3 students), University of
Chicago ( 3 students), Northwestern, Oxford, Edinburgh,
McGill, Brown, Cornell ( 3 students), UC Berkeley ( 13 stu-
dents) and UCLA ( 9 students).
Our International and French Baccalaureate diploma
programs help our students stand out in the selective college admissions competition. Our school also provides
many opportunities for growth outside the classroom, such
as music, theater, art, athletics, community service and
exchange trip opportunities.
Our students are accomplished, diverse, and interesting,
and, most importantly, are very well prepared for
the challenges and the excitement of life at university.
Congratulations Class of 2014!
