Isabela C.’16
St Andrews, Scotland

As the top student in her class during the past ten years, and with an international open mindedness, Isabela was an ideal candidate for  top universities in Europe.

We are very pleased to announce that Isabela will continue her studies at the University of  St Andrews in Scotland as she pursues a degree in Art History and International Relations. Over the last 600 years, the University of St Andrews has established a reputation as one of the world’s leading research and teaching centers while creating an environment which nurtures inquisitive minds and a culture of shared learning.

Alejandro Q.’16 
Columbia University, New York

The process of application for Engineering Schools at  US universities is both challenging and competitive.

Alejandro was accepted to the 8th Top Civil Engineering program in the United States at the University of Michigan.  In addition he was accepted at Columbia University School of Engineering  and Applied Science where only 7% of the applications received were offered admission. He has chosen Columbia University to begin his studies in Civil Engineering. He hopes to one day return to the Dominican Republic and be a leader amongst those aware of the need for new methods of construction in the future.  Thank you Alejandro for being part of the solution and we wish you all the best!
