Reaching out to support efforts in these difficult days

Tepeyac is committed to doing its share to help protesters and neighborhoods across the city. 

We collected water bottles, gatorade, snack bars, and first aid supplies to be distributed to various groups marching for the Black Lives Matter Movement. In addition, a small group of faculty joined the UCAN organization to clean up the North Lawndale neighborhood this past Saturday. We are standing in unison to help where we can; we will continue these efforts as long as it takes to raise awareness for the injustices that persist for our African American neighbors and fellow city residents.

Congratulations to them! Study near, go far Class of 2020!

Alum, Alondra Villanueva '16 graduates from College and is off to Med School

Alondra c/o '16 is one of the many seniors who graduated from college this summer of 2020! She did not anticipate the end of Senior year to look like this but she made it to the finish line regardless. Congratulations!

"None of this would have been possible without the countless support, love, encouragement, and opportunities that Tepeyac offered as soon as I walked through those doors freshman year. I have a lot of respect and love for the school and for everyone in it because you all supported and helped me grow and develop into the strong independent woman I am today! I believe in myself now because you all believed in me then...so a huge thank you and hug to everyone at Tepeyac and blessings and lots of encouragement to my new incoming Tepeyac sisters, " shares Alondra.

Alondra graduated from Hope College with a major in Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience. She has moved out to Cleveland, Ohio to continue preparation for Medical school. She is getting ready to start classes as a post-baccalaureate student at Cleveland State University, preparing to apply to medical school. Tepeyac is so proud! 
We wish her luck as she is in the middle of the hiring process to work as a PCNA (patient care nurse assistant) at the Cleveland Clinic. Your Tepeyac family is rooting for you!

Two seniors receive the Posse Scholarship, a FULL-tuition scholarship!

We have very special news to share. Two seniors, Emma and Marissa, were nominated and applied to the Posse Foundation Scholarship at the beginning of the school year. 

They went through three rounds of interviews making it to the final round. They received the best news, both were awarded The Posse Foundation Scholarship, a FULL-TUITION leadership scholarship from Posse’s partner colleges and universities. Emma will attend St. Olaf College while Marissa will attend Agnes Scott College next fall. Posse Foundation identifies, recruits and trains individuals with extraordinary leadership potential. We are so proud of these seniors - they are driven and excelled!

For the first time in a long time, we have TWO Posse Scholars and we are thrilled for them and their families. It was a competitive process amongst hundreds of other students from the nation. Congratulations to them - they worked so hard!
