96% of Sac High Seniors Accepted to Four-Year Universities!
The Class of 2019 will be remembered as one of our most cohesive classes ever to walk through Sac High’s doors. The students from the Class of 2019 are as close as a true family who supported each other throughout the ups and downs of high school, ultimately emerging as graduates. Ninety-six percent of the seniors have been accepted to four-year universities across the nation, including 38 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, 21 California State University campuses, all nine of the University of California campuses, and 26 private and out of state colleges and universities.
Now that all of the admissions and financial aid offers have come in and tough decisions have been made, we know that 64% of our seniors will be attending four-year colleges or universities (eight students to HBCU campuses, 53 to CSU campuses, 17 to UC campuses, and 10 to private or out of state public universities), 20% will be attending community colleges, 1% will enter the military, and 14% will be attending MicroCollege, a program new to the Sacramento area that provides a year of free college classes and support to our students.
Highlights from the class of 2019 include nine full ride academic scholarships and five full ride athletic scholarships. Orlando Ruvalcaba will be attending the esteemed United States Military Academy West Point and Kiarah Young will be the first of our students to attend Wesleyan University in Connecticut. In addition, the Class of 2019 has already earned over $150,000 in private scholarship funds (not including state, federal, and university grants)! It will be difficult for the class of 2020 to fill the talented shoes of 2019’s graduating class, but Sac High students have never shied away from challenges. As each class graduates, heads off to college, and earns their college degrees, we as an organization realize our mission to graduate self-motivated, industrious, and critically thinking leaders who are committed to serving others, passionate about lifelong learning and prepared to earn a degree from a four-year college.
