Academic excellence reflected in latest university acceptances

College Counseling 20 April 2018


So far the Class of 2018 has received 450 acceptances, a significant percentage of these to America's top 100 universities and colleges. 

We are incredibly proud of these excellent results and would like to extend congratulations to all of our students progressing on to undergraduate study. They have demonstrated determination, perseverance and sheer hard work. Below are testimonials from two of our standout seniors.


Uljad has been accepted at New York University (#30 National) to study Engineering.

Uljad has received a major scholarship to attend the NYU Abu Dhabi campus, including travel, room and board, he says, "I want a job in engineering that challenges me every day, a career that will enable me to travel, solve problems and break out of the mould. I also want a college education that will enable me to learn new things in the future and CATS has helped me start that journey. I am very satisfied with my acceptance.” 

Uljad joined CATS Academy for his senior year.


Alice has been accepted at Washington University in St. Louis (#18 National) to study English.

Alice has secured a major scholarship (guaranteed for four years including tuition and board), she says,  “I am thinking about studying journalism as a major in college. My passion for writing started at CATS Boston. I took a creative writing elective and I loved it. I adore literature and poetry. I’d like to work for a magazine for a few years and then go to Law school and pursue a career in Law.”

Alice has studied at CATS Academy for three years.
