Unit 4 School District Celebrates Illinois State Scholars

Mon, 12/09/2019 - 3:39pm

Champaign Unit 4 School District is pleased to announce that 95 Unit 4 students from the graduating class of 2020 (44 from Centennial High School and 51 from Central High School) have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars. 

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state agency committed to helping make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, confers this prestigious recognition annually to top Illinois high school students. This year, more than 17,500 exceptional honorees join the other top state students honored for their academic achievements since the designation was first introduced in 1958.  

Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 726 high schools across the state. Illinois State Scholars possess strong academic potential and are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank. 

While State Scholar recognition does not include a monetary prize, students receive congratulatory letters from ISAC, statewide recognition, as well as personalized Certificates of Achievement sent to each high school for distribution. A list of current Illinois State Scholars can also be found on ISAC’s website.
