MKA Junior Julian Hough Selected for Prestigious New Jersey Scholars Program
MKA is proud to share that Julian Hough ’23 was accepted into the competitive New Jersey Scholars Program (NJSP). An intensive academic program for highly intelligent and motivated students who are rising seniors, NJSP accepts a maximum of two applications from any high school in the state. Out of hundreds of applicants, only 39 students are accepted each year. For five weeks during the summer, the Scholars live at the Lawrenceville School while they explore a topic from an interdisciplinary perspective. This year's topic will be Into the Borderlands: Exploring the Spaces Between Big Ideas. The mission of the New Jersey Scholars Program is “to provide New Jersey’s rising high school seniors of extraordinary demonstrated academic potential with a free, ungraded, diverse, inclusive, and residential interdisciplinary learning environment that sharpens critical thinking, writing, and research skills, stimulates a desire for life-long learning, and fosters lasting interpersonal connections.” Congratulations, Julian on this remarkable accomplishment!
