Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

igniting and nurturing creative, ethical, scientific minds that advance the human condition

IMSA Announces Invited Class of 2012

The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy® (IMSA) has invited 252 Illinois students to enroll this fall as members of its sophomore class, the Class of 2012.  Area students selected include: (see below list).

The class represents schools and communities from throughout the state of Illinois.  Admission to IMSA’s residential college preparatory program is competitive.  The average SAT mathematics and critical reading scores for the students, most of whom are high school freshmen, are 665 and 590 respectively. These scores are significantly higher than the national averages for college-bound seniors, one indication of the applicants' strong credentials.  Students offered admission include 125 girls and 127 boys.

IMSA President Dr. Max McGee welcomed IMSA’s newest invited sophomore class, and noted that this year was a record year for IMSA admissions.

“This was a banner year for IMSA admissions and we are thrilled to announce that we received the highest number of applicants since 1993,” McGee said.  “The state of Illinois can be proud of  IMSA’s reputation for providing talented students with a world class education, one that is sought after by prospective students and their families,” he added. 

IMSA Principal Dr. Eric McLaren said the newest invited sophomore class represents the Academy's commitment to identify and attract talented mathematics and science students from throughout the state.

“These students' guidance counselors and teachers should be commended for helping and encouraging them to develop their mathematics and science abilities," Dr. McLaren said.  "IMSA is committed to serving talented young students by immersing them in a program that ignites and nurtures creative, scientific minds that advance the human condition."
