Twenty-four EPHS seniors have been named 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements.

The honor, conferred by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), goes each year to those students who rank in the top 10 percent of the state’s high school graduating seniors.

Last year, 18 EPHS seniors received the honor.

State rankings are based on a combination of ACT or SAT test scores, class rank at the end of the sixth semester, class size and unweighted grade point average (GPA). Detailed information about how Illinois State Scholars are selected is available here at the ISAC website. 

While the program does not provide a monetary award, the designation as an Illinois State Scholar can be listed on applications for college admission and scholarships.
