Ivan Camps Abad, 17, was admitted to the University of Pennsylvenia four months following the completion of the Education USA program. Ivan will be double majoring in Physics and Business.

"The Academy provides an enriching environment that allows you to discover and challenge yourself, to build on your strengths and work on your weaknesses," Ivan said. "Something invaluable as you apply to U.S. universities, write your essays, and define your goals and preferences."
