Only 767 high school seniors in the entire United States are awarded full four-year scholarships and admission to top colleges through the QuestBridge program and EPATT’s own Jason Asenso is now one of them. How did he do it? Jason earned above a 4.0 GPA and took many challenging courses at Woodside High School. He will be attending Northwestern University in Illinois in the fall. Congratulations Jason!

High School Group Arts & Culture Experience
Members of the HSG group attended Luzia “A Waking Dream of Mexico,” Cirque du Soleil’s newest show. The trip started with a train ride to San Francisco, and a short walk to AT&T Park to where the show was located. All the students were amazed by the show and some even described it as “magical.” EPATT will continue to sponsor future arts and culture outings to provide enriching experiences to our students.
