2013 Ivy League Project at the White House
In partnership with the California Ivy League Project (ILP), founded by Martín Mares in 1992, Turlock High School has established a program to encourage economically disadvantaged and/or historically underrepresented students to apply to the most prestigious universities in America—the Ivy Leagues. Our program selects the most talented and promising 10th and 11th grade students and takes them to visit the top universities on the East Coast. Too often, students from the Central Valley do not have the confidence to apply to the prestigious Ivy Leagues. Through exposure to these universities as well as admissions and financial aid sessions with counselors, students have their knowledge expanded and learn the necessary skills to apply to and be accepted to Ivy League colleges.
