What We Look For

We seek students who will contribute to our community—and to society throughout their lives.


Academic achievement is important, but it's only part of what we consider when making decisions. We look for applicants who are curious, determined, and creative. We take into account special talents or successes that might not appear on a transcript. We appreciate unique perspectives formed by personal circumstances. These qualities help prepare students to make the most of their education.
