First ACCS Scholar to be accepted to Atlantic County Institute of Technology

8th grade scholar, Gabriella Westcott, is the first from her class to be admitted into Atlantic County Institute of Technology, ACIT.

Friday night, as she was getting an early start on her homework, Gabby’s father approached her saying he had good news- she was admitted to her top choice for high school!

“I threw my papers up in the air and started dancing around the kitchen,” the eager, almost graduate, admitted.

Gabby hopes to join the Mechanical Science track upon starting ACIT next fall in the hopes of getting closer to achieving her dream of becoming an airplane mechanic for the Air Force. She’ll also be trying out for volleyball & track, and plans to join as many music clubs as possible to grow her current passion of playing piano, guitar, bass and ukulele. (Our scholars are so talented!)

Miss Westcott mentioned that she could not have done this without the help of her amazing teachers at ACCS. She specifically thanked Ms. O’Connell, Ms. Dattilo & Ms. KC; teachers who were all impactful in her intellectual & emotional growth. “They were there for me no matter what, and helped me through everything during my time here.”

Congrats, Gabby! We can’t wait to see all the amazing things you accomplish!
