Penisula Academy College Acceptance Update

Fall 2024

The 2023-2024 college admissions cycle has been intensely competitive, particularly at top UCs and Top 30 colleges and universities. Despite this, our students stood out, securing acceptances at some of the most prestigious institutions across the country. Our team worked with 15 students from diverse academic and socioeconomic backgrounds, with unweighted GPAs ranging from 3.1 to 4.0. These students pursued a variety of interests, including psychology, business, film, game development, physics, biology, philosophy, and nursing, among others. As of May 1, 2024, each of these students has gained college acceptances. Impressively, 92% were accepted to at least one of their top three choices, 38% gained admission to Top 20 colleges and universities, 62% to Top 30 schools, and 92% to Top 50 institutions. Furthermore, one third of our students were awarded merit scholarships. Some of the prestigious institutions that accepted our students include the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, UCLA, UC Berkeley, USC, Emory, NYU, University of Michigan, Boston University, Boston College, Northeastern, Amherst, and Wellesley.
