Three eighth-grade students at The Academy of Our Lady of Peace School in New Providence have been accepted to the prestigious Union County Vocational Technical School (“UCVTS”) high school program.
The so-called “Magnet School” system is actually comprised of five schools that are part of the UCVTS campus in Scotch Plains. The schools are highly competitive and offer admission only to a select number of exemplary students. The Academy students offered acceptance this year are: Julia Nowicki at The Academy of Information Technology - where students with a keen interest in computer science and information technology attend a college-level technical training program; Brendan Kavanagh and Brigit Wolf at The Magnet High School - one of the region’s most competitive and specialized programs in engineering, math, science and technology.
Gaining acceptance to the schools of their choice and earning many scholarships, these students along with the rest of their eighth-grade class, have demonstrated dedication and exceptional talent. They look forward to the opportunities and challenges that the next phase of their education will afford them. Congratulations to all.
