Founded in 2002 in California on the basis that gifted young students could reach their full potential in a learning environment suited to their individual needs, it is now a nationally recognized scholarship that not only provides the four year scholarship, but also the support and counsel needed in choosing the right high school, college and beyond through a strong community of intellectual peers and cross-generational support network.

Thomas has not decided which high school that he will attend to date;but, wherever he decides to pursue his education, he will embody a Caroline D. Bradley scholar as a student who “excels academically, displays a genuine quest for knowledge, thrives in the discovery process, is a leader among peers and embraces the ideals of integrity, service and honesty.”   He has taken two Advanced Placement exams and is currently studying Variable Calculus as his math class this semester.  “We appreciate all of the help that OHA provided to Thomas,” his father, David Wang, wrote in an email to Oak Hill.  “This is impossible without OHA!”

The Oak Hill Academy family would like to congratulate Thomas and his family on this spectacular achievement and opportunity.
