American Heritage Schools Celebrates Seniors’ Early College Acceptances

Early acceptance students from the American Heritage Schools Palm Beach campus.

American Heritage Schools, a leading college preparatory school with the highest number of National Merit Scholars and highest U.S. Presidential Scholars of all high schools in Florida, recently announced that many of its 2022 graduates have received early acceptances to the nation’s top colleges and universities.

At American Heritage Schools, preparing for college begins as early as elementary school, and often by the time a student is a senior, he or she has selected a dream school. Many students choose to apply to their first-choice college through the early decision process and, again this year, many of these students received early acceptances to their first-choice schools.

The American Heritage Schools Pre-Professional Programs, Science Research Institute and 75 offerings in the arts inspire students to choose their college majors and career aspirations. The rigorous curriculum and access to high-level resources continue to prove successful year after year. Many in this year’s graduating class chose to apply to elite colleges and universities, including Harvard University, Stanford University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania and Georgetown University, to name a few. American Heritage students enjoyed some of the highest acceptance rates to elite universities in the entire nation.

“I plan to double major in political economy and finance at Georgetown University, and the pre-law program at American Heritage Schools motivated me to participate in mock trial and moot court competitions and serve as the president of the Heritage Chapter of the Florida Law Honor Society,” said Alexis Nguyen, a senior who will be attending Georgetown in fall. “Those experiences helped with both my social capacity and academic ability to work hard and succeed. To have had instructors in high school that were attorneys and judges gave me the extra edge.”

American Heritage Schools’ students are dedicated, high achieving and passionate about creating a better world and putting their academic, artistic and altruistic endeavors to good use.

“My future plan is for a career in the tech industry. The pre-engineering program at American Heritage allowed me to explore my interest and passion for engineering and design to a higher level,” said Nigel Alexis, a senior who will be attending Columbia University with plans to major in computer and electrical engineering. “It was a one-of-a-kind opportunity that led me to choose the major which I intend to pursue at Columbia University. To be taught only by expert engineers in high school was an amazing experience.”

American Heritage Schools is the No. 1 private school in Florida for nationally recognized scholars, in math competition, science fair, mock trial, moot court, and speech and debate. “We are proud to have our students gain early acceptances to their dream schools,” said Dr. Doug Laurie, president of American Heritage Schools. “Each student demonstrates strength of character and the motivation to excel, and their futures are as equally bright as they are.”
