Class of 2014: 57 New Alumni

Mount Michael Benedictine School Class of 2014 Accomplishments
Mount Michael is proud to announce the accomplishments of the 57 young men of the class of 2014.  The average ACT score for this class is a 26.8, compared to the average ACT score in the national is a 20.9 and for the state of Nebraska is a 21.5.  The Omaha World Herald’s All-Academic Team recognizes graduates with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and a minimum ACT score of 32.  Those chosen are in the top 4% of the state of Nebraska; however, Mount Michael had 13 young men meet the qualifications, representing 23% of the class of 2013.  They are Cameron Engel, Jacob Eyth, Rowan Gruber, Alex Hynes, Eun Woo Jee, Ha-Seul Jeong, Kevin Jewell, Andy Johannes, Thomas Kalil, Moon Sup Kim, John Mikulicz, Will Sleddens and Scott Townsend.

                Additionally, the 57 graduates were accepted for admission to 77 different colleges and universities in 35 states and two countries.  They will be attending 28 colleges in 21 different states and two countries; 54% of our graduating class will be attending college out-of-state and 33% will be attending private colleges.  Among the students choosing to remain in-state, five will attend Creighton University and 22 will attend either the University of Nebraska-Lincoln or the University of Nebraska-Omaha from which nine have earned Regent’s Scholarships from the University of Nebraska System.  This is the most ever for a class at Mount Michael. There are also three Mount Michael graduates who will be attending Iowa State University and another three who will pursue their college career at the University of Notre Dame.

                The Class of 2014 was offered $4,001,926 in scholarship money.  Of this total, 27% of scholarship offers have been accepted.  This means our graduates will use $1,478,540 toward their college costs, which calculates to $43,000 in accepted scholarship money per student.

                We are very proud of the Mount Michael Benedictine School graduating class of 2014 and wish them all the best future success.
