First students graduate from Princeton Prep

The first students to complete the Princeton University Preparatory Program, an intensive, three-year academic experience for high school students, are heading to 16 colleges and universities in the fall.

"When Miguel Centeno and I first launched the Preparatory Program, we dreamed of outcomes like this," said John Webb, director of the University's Program in Teacher Preparation, who co-founded the program with Centeno, a professor of sociology.

"The students' accomplishments and the record of college acceptances and scholarships are the realization of that dream," he said. "As a result of their hard work and what we've done in the preparatory program, the students are poised on the brink of a splendid future."

Two of the students will be attending Princeton in the fall. Others are heading to Columbia University, Vassar College, Rutgers University, Pennsylvania State University, Tulane University and Bryn Mawr College.
