ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Jan. 17, 2014 – Nine members of Fulton Science Academy High School’s Class of 2014 have been admitted to college on an early decision basis, the school announced today.
This year, two students were accepted to Georgia Tech and one each was accepted to Auburn University, Emory University, Oglethorpe University, Princeton, University of Pittsburgh and Young Harris College. Specifically, they are:
Varun Ballari - Georgia Tech
Abdul Binghalan – Emory University
Chase Connor - Young Harris College
Narayana Duggirala - University of Pittsburgh
Sabra Hanif – Ogelthorpe University
James Morgan - Georgia Tech
Hedaya Othman – Georgia State University
Tim Riordan – Auburn University
Juan Sepulveda – Princeton University
Typically, students may apply “early decision” to their first choice college. Most, but not all, schools require students to accept an early decision admissions offer.
“We are very proud of these students and their achievements,” Principal Namik Sercan said. “This is a nail-biting time of year for high school seniors across the state, ours included. We are glad that these eight students have their college plans in place and are able to refocus on finishing the year strong.”
Of the school’s 173 students, about 30 are in the senior class. In all likelihood, the school will expand in the upcoming academic year. FSA High School is about two-thirds of its way through the annual enrollment period and has already received well over 270 applications, though not all applicants will enroll. The application period closes on January 25.
