It's with great pride that Saint Alphonsus Liguori School in Prospect Heights announces that four of their 8th graders have qualified for exceptional programs going into high school.

Two of the students have qualified for the Father Louis Querbes Scholars Program at Saint Viator High School in Arlington Heights. Brenna Drabik and Keely Mc Clellan are the young ladies that have reached this very presitigious level.

Querbes Scholars are students of exceptional academic promise and are highly motivated. To qualify, they needed to be in the top 7 national percent on the Saint Viator Entrance Exam, maintain a minimum of 97% GPA to remain in the program, 3-4 honors classes each year and that's just to name a few requirements.

"Saint Alphonsus Liguori has 12 graduates this year and to have 4 of them (33%) of them to reach these goals is exceptional and as a community, we are very proud of them", said Principal Linda Chorazy.

"This graduating clas is exceptional and will be leaders in the world to come" remarked 8th grade teacher, Brett Seick.
