Senior Receives Full Scholarship to Wesleyan

Senior Cloe’Ann Santiago has been admitted to Wesleyan University with a full four-year QuestBridge National College Match Scholarship. “When I found out I was accepted, I was in disbelief,” Cloe’Ann said. “I didn't think I would ever get matched to a school. I was beyond happy because I knew I wouldn't have to worry about college tuition anymore.”


At St. Jean’s, Cloe’Ann is a member of  the Student-Faculty Book Club, National English Honor Society, Student Ambassadors, and the Business Initiative Club. She is also a Senior Service Girl helping with admissions. Cloe’Ann hopes to major in anthropology and minor in art history at Wesleyan. Her goal is to pursue museum work, something she has already begun exploring through internship opportunities in conjunction with St. Jean’s.


QuestBridge is a national nonprofit that connects high-achieving students from low-income backgrounds with leading institutions of higher education. This year the organization selected 6,683 finalists from a field of more than 20,800 applicants to be considered for the QuestBridge National College Match Scholarship. QuestBridge’s 50 college partners matched with 2,242 of those finalists. These students are admitted early to QuestBridge college partners with full four-year scholarships provided by the colleges and universities, ensuring for these students and their families that an education at a top college is affordable. The Match Scholarship is a generous financial aid package that covers the full cost of attendance, including tuition, housing and food, books and supplies, and travel expenses.


Achievement is in Cloe’Ann’s DNA. Her sister Caitlyn graduated from St. Jean’s in 2021 and is studying biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
