Five Paideia students Alec Harris, Ella Kim, Rohan Leveille, Catherine London and Layney McCord, are nominees in the 2021 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. Each year, 160 or so students are named as Presidential Scholars. The award program, which was established in 1962, recognizes students based on academic and artistic achievement. The students selected as Presidential Scholars are presented the U.S. Presidential Scholars medallion at a ceremony sponsored by the White House in June.
Three Paideia high school students have been admitted to the Student Bar of Georgia. Anna Claire Shuman, Jacob Schnell, and Rohan Chanani were admitted after attending the competitive Georgia Bar Association’s High School Law Academy, whose faculty is made up of attorneys and judges from across Georgia. The Academy provides pre-Mock Trial season training for students. Jacob was admitted with honors. About 20 students are admitted annually.
