Students from the Class of 2017 began the next chapter of their education this week as they attended their first university classes in Chile.
Our 25 students who elected to stay in Chile were accepted to the best universities. Nearly half will attend Universidad Católica or Universidad de Chile, and the rest were accepted to other prestigious universities, including Universidad Adolfo Ibañez, Universidad Diego Portales, and others. Of the students attending university in Chile, 80% applied through the PSU, and 20% applied through Special Admissions with the IB Diploma or Nido Academic Diploma. Students are studying in a multitude of areas including Business, Civil Engineering, Political Science, Psychology, and Language & Literature. Of our 25 students, 76% reported they were accepted to their first choice in University and area.
Nido's PSU ranking has steadily risen since the establishment of the Academia PSU Nido. In 2016 Nido ranked 25 of all high schools in Chile, and this year climbed to 20. These excellent PSU results and university acceptances prove that students can take advantage of the unique educational experience the Nido de Aguilas offers and at the same time be successful in the Chilean educational system.
Congratulations to our Nido graduates in Chile during your first week of classes! We know each of you will continue to spread the Nido Way throughout your studies and careers.
