Super Scholars logoJoin us for a night of extraordinary recognition as 120* graduating seniors representing all 20 OCPS high schools are introduced as the 2021 “Super Scholars.” Their commitment and accomplishments inside the classroom and out resulted in them receiving acceptance letters from one or more top 20 colleges and universities as ranked by “U.S. News and World Report” or by receiving an appointment letter from one of the nation’s service academies. The Super Scholars’ academic achievements serve as an example and inspiration for other students that, no matter where you go to school, you can find success in Orange County Public Schools.
