Imani alumna Ariel Smith (Imani '06) earned a full paid scholarship to Stanford University. Often referred to as the "Harvard of the West", Stanford University is a world-renown research institution with a highly-selective admissions process. As an Imani student, Arielle had her first foray into collegiate excellence when she was invited to participate in the Duke Talent Identification Program (T.I.P.). Founded at Duke University, this exclusive program selects 7th graders from across the nation - with high standardized test scores - to take the ACT or SAT college entrance exam. Way to go Arielle! We're so proud of you!
