Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
—Marianne Williamson, from Akeelah and the Bee

Recognition Ceremony invitations will be emailed to students in the top 25% by grade by subtest at the email that was on your WATS application in early April. Please let us know immediately if this address has changed.


The 2015 Interpretive Guide will be published in April, once we have received the last set of Feb EXP and ACT scores. At that time, we are able to help you with score interpretation. Until then, please keep in mind that your national score report compares a lot of much older oranges to the apple of your eye! The Interpretive Guide will be emailed to you at the address you provided on your original application - if you don't receive it before May, there was an error in your email. Please contact us.
