Lemont High School had 58 students selected as Illinois State Scholars by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC). Typically more than 20,000 students from across Illinois are honored with this prestigious award each year.
Illinois State Scholars honorees represent approximately the top 10 percent of the state’s high school seniors, representing nearly 750 high schools. Selection is based on SAT or ACT scores and class rank (if applicable) at the end of the student’s junior year. High school guidance counselors work with ISAC to determine the winners.
Illinois State Scholar recognition does not include a monetary award, but winners may use the distinction on applications for college admission and scholarships. Both students and their parents are encouraged to visit the ISAC website for more information about available college financial assistance programs.
