"Dear Silver Creek Academy,
This is in reference to the High School admissions results that came out this weekend. I wanted to share the good news that I got into my top two choices of schools- Archbishop Mitty and Notre Dame High School.
I want to thank you for all your help in preparing me for the HSPT test and for the high school essays. I did really well on the test and my scores were all on the high
ranges across. Once again thank you so much for all your efforts. This would not have ever been possible without your help."-Nikita
