Valencia Academics: Today and Tomorrow

As Principal of Valencia High School, I am proud to announce several noteworthy early university acceptances by Valencia seniors.  Daniel Hamidi was accepted to Yale; Brandon Kao to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of Pennsylvania (Penn); Mayer Uppal to Penn; Andrea Bae to Notre Dame; Cole Engstrom to United States Naval Academy and to the Coast Guard Academy; Luisa Parish to the Schools of Engineering at Ohio State, Michigan, Purdue, Illinois, Tulane, Arizona and Minnesota; Renee Monzon and Joshua Gonzalez to Baylor; Danica Mauer to Chapman as a Presidential Scholar; Mitchell Joppru to Florida Tech; Brianna Munoz to Fordham; June Jung to the Art Institute of Chicago; Amber Hoskins to the School of Nursing at Point Loma; Mark Walker to Texas; Savina Dhupar to Drexel; Mimi Lovering to UCLA on a music scholarship; Jeremy Barragan to St. Johns; Erin Moon to Biola; and Adam Lipshin to the School of Engineering at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. 

Hamidi, Kao, Uppal, Joppro, Dhupar, Lipshin, and Parish are all International Baccalaureate Diploma Candidates.  Engstrom, Munoz, Hoskins and Barragan are Val Tech Diploma Candidates.

Valencia has had at least one student accepted to MIT six of the past eight years.  Patricia Widener and Alejandro Dos Reis are recent grads.  Candice Wu and Curtis Wu are slated to graduate this year.  Felicia Hsu is currently a junior at MIT with a 4.0 GPA.

I am confident that this list of early acceptances is only “the tip of the iceberg.”  Valencia’s Class of 2014 has nine National Merit Semifinalists, 23 National Merit Commended Scholars, and well over 50 IB Diploma Candidates.
