Student accepted into 3 top US universities

Sixth Form Prefect Isabella receives acceptances from 3 top US universities.

18-year-old Sixth Form student Isabella has been accepted into the most prestigious Military University in the United States; The United States Military Academy at West Point, to study Medicine with the goal of becoming a Doctor. 

West Point is one of the top universities in the United States and has just a 10% acceptance rate and requires securing a nomination from a Senator/Congressman or the Vice-President alongside rigorous fitness tests. The United States Military Academy alumni include former presidents and senior generals.

Two further top 20 US universities; the University of Notre Dame and The United States Air Force Academy, have also offered Isabella a place.

Isabella’s father said: “Without a doubt, the character building, education, and culture of commitment to pupils is something she could not have received anywhere else. As a family we are eternally grateful for all Rendcomb College has done to prepare her for the future.”

Isabella has taken on leadership responsibilities at Rendcomb including becoming an International, Charities and Sports Prefect. She’s currently preparing to take her A Level examinations in mathematics, physics and chemistry.

Rendcomb College’s Head of Sixth Form, Christine Williams said: “A place at West Point is highly coveted and Isabella’s acceptance is a fabulous achievement. She has worked extremely hard for this, demonstrating her physical and mental resilience through a range of academic and extra-curricular commitments during her time at Rendcomb. Our community has benefited enormously from her enthusiasm, determination, commitment to service and leadership, and I know she will flourish at West Point. We wish her the very best for the exciting next steps in her education.”
