Record-breaking university acceptances show student success in action

College Counseling 11 May 2020

In unprecedented times, CATS Academy celebrates success with 250 acceptances into top 100* US universities.

It’s with beaming pride that CATS Academy Boston announces its best ever year for university acceptances. Defying the challenges of the ongoing global situation, 250 of our students have been accepted into one or more of the top 100* US universities.

This impressive number is up 54% from 162 last year, and even beats 2018’s previous record of 167.

In other words, 55% of students with a university place have offers from at least one of those top 100 universities.


Celebrating together

Highlights of these amazing achievements include one student from Vietnam with 27 acceptances so far, 21 of which are from top 100* institutions.

Another student, from China, has 10 acceptances, with five from top 100 universities and the other five from among the top 50.

Our Head of School, Ben Bonaventura, had this to say;

“Congratulations to the class of 2020 on your college acceptances. As a result of your hard work and with the guidance of your teachers and college counsellors at CATS Academy Boston you have been accepted to some of the finest universities in the world, including international schools such as Edinburgh, Toronto, and Kings College London.
