Congrats to Kauffman School junior Naya who was selected to participate in the LEDA Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America program. LEDA prepares students for admittance into the most highly-selective colleges in the country. Naya will study on Princeton University's campus for the 7-week program, developing her skills in academics, SAT/ACT content, writing, and college application strategies. This is a highly-selective program that receives over 1,250 applications and only selects 100 students each year.
Congrats to our rising seniors who have collectively secured $1 million in college scholarships! Twenty students were awarded a KC Scholars Scholarship worth $50,000. We are proud of our PREPsters!
From India to Tanzania to Ecuador, high school students studied abroad this summer through The Experiment in International Living. The program, which typically lasts about 6 weeks, allows students to live with host families, explore a passion area (like public health), and grow an appreciation of new culture and relationships.
Several Kauffman School students have been participating in the Tucker Leadership Lab hosted by William Jewell College. The program encourages students to explore their leadership identity and plan ways to be leaders in the upcoming school year.
Congrats to 7th grader Jordan who was surprised with the Vincent Legacy Scholarship from Kansas City Starlight Theater. Jordan has been using this scholarship to pursue fine arts classes this summer and deepen her love of the arts!
