What’s it like to be a Dart High School Scholar?

Thomas Sevik's engineering project
I gained an incredible wealth of knowledge from that memorable week-long Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture Camp. I especially enjoyed the ‘design-build-test’ experiences that helped develop our problem-solving skills as we worked on our first marine vessel engineering projects. THOMAS JAMES SEVIK JR.

Dart Scholar Diandra Whittaker
Applying was exciting and scary. Seeing so many academically gifted students apply inspired me. It was scary taking a test and applying; however, the Dart Family made me feel comfortable and welcomed throughout the process. DIANDRA WHITTAKER
ST. IGNATIUS CATHOLIC SCHOOL
Anja van Genderen at Young Doctor's Academy
The scholarship has provided me with many opportunities. The most recent was the opportunity to experience Oxford Young Doctor's Academy. I learned so much about the field of medicine, and it reinforced my interest in the life sciences, especially biochemistry. ANJA VAN GENDEREN
CAYMAN PREP AND HIGH SCHOOL
The calibre of the finalists was impressive. Their character, tenacity and professionalism - especially at this young age - stood out, making their accomplishment even more notable. These young Caymanians are our future leaders, and that gives me a great sense of confidence for the future of our country. MARK VANDEVELDE
