Emily in Grade 5, has won a scholarship to the prestigious Aspire Program at Hathaway Brown School in Shaker Heights, OH.
Over 100 high achieving girls girls from many area school districts underwent the lengthy and demanding application and interview process. Only seven girls from CMSD were invited to become part of Aspire's Class of 2019.
The long honored Aspire Program offers high achieving girls three consecutive years of tuition-free summer classes and programming that stress academics, enrichment, community service and leadership.
After graduating the program in ninth grade, Aspire continues to support their scholars with regular meetings, college counseling services and additional scholarships. During their college years, many Aspire Scholars return for the summer as Aspire teachers and counselors.
Emily becomes the eight student from Douglas MacArthur to be selected as an Aspire Scholar. Congratulations Emily!
