Nick Nava Chosen for Special Program at Ivy League School

Nick Nava

Miami, September 24, 2014 - SAS Kendall senior Nick Nava has been chosen to attend the Penn Early Exploration Program in October at the Ivy League school.  Nick will be flown up to Philadelphia for an all expense paid three day visit that includes all costs associated with food, housing, and transportation.

Penn only selects students for this program if they are likely to be offered full admission to the school at a later point in their senior year of high school.  Nick's selection was based on his high level academic achievements and demonstrated leadership skills.

Nick will have the opportunity to explore Penn's interdisciplinary academic paths and its no loan, all grant financial aid program. He will also receive instruction on how he can strengthen his application to Penn and other highly selective institutions.

Everyone at SAS is very proud of this exceptional young man.
