Link’s Class of ’18 earns record $4.9m for high school

Link Community Charter School is proud to announce that the graduates in the Class of 2018 have been awarded over $4.9 million in scholarships and financial aid for high school. This amount exceeds the school’s record of $4.3 million set by last year’s graduates. These financial resources provide access to prestigious and competitive independent boarding and day schools that Link scholars would not otherwise have. The schools that offered scholarships and aid include St. Mark’s School, The Master’s School, George School, Governor’s Academy, Concord Academy, The Dublin School, Peddie School, and others. In addition, students were accepted into and received scholarship and financial aid from private day schools in NJ, including Newark Academy, St. Peter’s Prep, The Hudson School, Seton Hall Prep, St. Vincent Academy, St. Benedict’s Prep, Marist, Immaculate Conception, and more.

Link’s Head of School Maria Pilar Paradiso states, “We are proud of the 71 graduates of the Class of 2018. They are our school’s first class to graduates with a full four years at Link, and their success is evident in the record amount they have earned for high school. Independent boarding and day schools, as well as scholarship programs, clearly recognize the quality of a Link student to have conferred such generous scholarships and financial aid, and we are grateful to them on behalf of our graduates. We are excited that, with the resources granted to our graduates, they will continue to succeed academically, to building upon the excellent education they received at Link.”
