#49 – Great Expectations
Elite athletes typically prefer to train with the most competitive men and women in their sport because it challenges them to keep raising the bar even higher. In the same way, our students benefit from a well-established tradition of academic excellence and success.   It’s not cool to be passive, uninterested, or mediocre at Linfield. Instead, not only does the culture celebrate hard work and achievement, it expects it. As they embrace rigorous course loads and excel in their classes, our students encourage and motivate each other to keep striving and to accept nothing less than their very best. One end result? Our students have the highest ACT/SAT scores in the area, and 97% of them go on to college!
