At Obridge Academy we have no doubt that student graduating from 4-years with Obridge Academy will be accepted at highly selective colleges and universities. We will prepare our students through personalized instruction and one-on-one counseling for success in both their Middle and High School years which will prepare them fully for their college careers.
Our students learn early in their Obridge Academy careers to work independently, take responsibility for themselves and take control of their future. These are just a few of the traits needed to make college a successful experience.
A few other criteria to consider:
Each college & university has their own standards for admissions. Ask them for details, usually these are published or will be provided upon request.
SAT and/or ACT scores are often a criteria. All Obridge Academy students in grade 11 and 12 are expected to take one of these tests.
Extracurricular activities make a difference.
Grades matter, usually over the high school years, including the last year of school.
Integrity and legal history is an important factor.
Admissions essay should be carefully written and completed with excellence.
Letters of recommendation from teachers, business community members, leaders, etc.
Athletic ability (for scholarships) is often considered.
Family legacy is sometimes a factor: some colleges will prefer students with parents who attended.
Ethnicity/Race can be a factor.
Ability to pay full tuition is important to some colleges.
Ability to donate to the school is often highly regarded.
Perceived fit by the student into the student body can be a factor.
Live interviews with the student make a difference.
The importance of admissions criteria factors varies among universities, and each school’s selectiveness varies significantly as measured by their admissions rate. An admissions rate can depend both on selectiveness and number and type of applicant. The admissions rate can range from 100% for schools that accept everyone with a high school diploma, to under 10% for extremely competitive schools.
