EA News

We're excited to announce that the Fall 2016 issue of Personally Speaking, the new magazine of Elgin Academy, has arrived! The issue—featuring a brand new design, exciting stories, and amazing photography—focuses on the theme of "Taking Learning Personally. We hope you will enjoy the magazine as much as we enjoyed putting it together!




Congratulations to Seniors Sophie Borchart and Andrew Wilson who were named Honorable Mention to the Daily Herald Leadership team for outstanding community service. One essential trait of a Hilltopper is compassion towards others. These two display that quality perfectly through their involvement in various school, community, and outreach service ventures.

Middle School Bees Promote Learning

Recently, Middle School students participated in the National Geographic Bee, an annual competition organized by the National Geographic Society to inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world. Over 11,000 schools across the United States participate in this bee all for the glory of being National Bee Champion.

Seventh-grader Tommy Guyett was the winner and sixth-grader Krish Patel was runner up. Tommy advances to the Illinois State Bee qualifying test. A victory at State would mean a trip to Washington, D.C, for the national competition. Good luck, Tommy!

Middle School students also recently participated in the National History Bee school competition and placed high enough on the Online Regional Qualifying Exam to advance to the Regional Finals. The Regional Finals will be held on Saturday, March 25th at St. Francis High School in Wheaton. Congratulations and good luck to Lucas Muffitt (8th grade), Sophie Shanae Gould Dulabaum (7th grade), Johnathan Vogt (7th grade), and Tommy Guyett(7th grade).

Elgin Academy Announces Illinois State Scholars

Elgin Academy is pleased to announce that twelve seniors have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars, a distinction given to the top ten percent of Illinois high school students annually. We congratulate Helen Borchart, Amelia Deering, Maisy Feeley, Edward Joyce, Nadine Kademoglou, Nicholas Kathrein, Catherine Palmer, Stephanie Pierson, Meaghan Roberti, Henry Stone, Elliott Wittmeyer, and David Zuzevich.

While each year, about 20% of the graduating class at EA is named Illinois State Scholars, this year's class proved exceptional. Almost one-third of the Class of 2017 earned the designation of Illinois State Scholar!

The EA seniors join the ranks of other exceptional students from 765 high schools across the state. The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (the state agency committed to helping students and families navigate the financial aid process) bestows this honor after a review of ACT/SAT scores from junior year only as well as overall student academic performance.
