After three months dedicated to the recruitment process, we at the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (SLI) are excited to announce that all admission decisions for the incoming class of 2023 have been finalized. From the written applications to the student interviews to the SLI-hosted information sessions, we were amazed by the talent and passion of this year’s applicants. While we wish that we could accept everybody into the program, there are only a certain number of slots in each grade level cohort and admission is competitive; this year we had to turn away more than half of the applicants.
The incoming class will be coming from four different schools throughout the district to attend the program. As an introduction to SLI, they will be invited to various welcome events before the end of the year; and then they will officially start the program in July with SLI’s summer session. We are thrilled to welcome them to the program and excited to see everything they will accomplish over the next six years.
