With less than a week to go before college enrollment choices are finalized, the 31 graduating seniors for the Class of 2014 at La Pietra - Hawaii School for Girls have much to celebrate. They have been accepted into over 90 colleges and universities with a total of $7.3 million in merit scholarships alone. Of the acceptances, twenty-six percent of the graduating class has been accepted into a top 50 nationally ranked college or university.
“We know the record high of $7.3 million in merit scholarships would not have been possible without the hard work from our teachers. Our teachers work relentlessly with the girls to ensure they are receiving the tools and education necessary to succeed,” said Mahina Hugo, Head of School for La Pietra.
