Students ranking in the top ten percent of the state's 136,198 high school graduating seniors have been named State Scholars. Rankings are based on a combination of ACT and/or SAT test score results and class rank at the end of the junior year of high school, unless the students achieved a score at or above the 95th percentile for Illinois students on one of the standardized tests. While the program does not provide a monetary reward, the designation as a State Scholar can be listed on applications for college admission and scholarships.
"We are very proud of these students," said CHS Principal John Highland. "We look forward to their continued success."
