Molly Xiao ’21 and Aniyah Nelson ’21 have both been named Joyce Ivy Summer Scholars and were the only independent school students selected for this program. Molly has enrolled in Brown University’s summer program and will be taking a course in “Law, Ethics, and Democracy.” Aniyah, who has enrolled in Harvard’s Pre-College Program through the Joyce Ivy program, will be taking a summer course called “The Science of Politics: An Introduction to Coding and Statistical Analysis.” She was also accepted to the University of Chicago Summer Scholars program and has yet to determine her course selection. It remains to be seen whether these summer classes will be held on campus or online.
