High school student accepted to 26 Universities, offered $3million in scholarships

Arianna Alexander was accepted into 26 colleges – including six Ivy League universities – and was awarded a combined total of more than $3 million in scholarships.

Arianna graduated as valedictorian of her class at Kenwood Academy High School in Chicago, Illinois, and earned a 5.1 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

“It was a lot to take in. I received emails, letters. It was just like, ‘Come here, come here!’ They were bombarding me with all this information,” Arianna told WLS.
Among all the acceptances were scholarship offers that mean Arianna can afford college and not worry about the cost.
Arianna was inspired to aim high with encouragement from her parents and seeing a previous Kenwood student awarded with about $1 million in scholarships.
“I planted the seed in Arianna’s mind that you can do the same thing,” her father Pierre Alexander.
“So when the process got started and a million was achieved, let’s go for two. I said let’s go for three and she did it,” he added.
