A Message from the Valedictorian
“Lourdes has provided me with an abundance of challenges and opportunities, both academic and athletic, through which I have learned and matured. Furthermore, Lourdes has allowed me to develop important values such as optimism, persistence, and a willingness to try new activities.
I am glad I attended Lourdes because the Lourdes community is truly unlike any other. I have gained lifelong companions each year at Lourdes. The faculty and staff work endlessly to provide us with a brilliant education, and I have received mentorship from my teachers each step of my high school education.”
Albert was accepted to Cornell University, University of Notre Dame, UC Berkley, UCLA, Carnegie Mellon University, New York University, Brown University, and the University of Michigan.
He will be attending Cornell University and hopes to major in computer science or biomedical engineering in the College of Engineering at Cornell. He will also be one of approximately 30 students in the Hunter R. Rawlings III Presidential Research Scholars program, which will allow him to conduct financially supported, faculty-mentored research throughout his undergraduate years. He hopes to pursue a career as a software engineer and possibly start his own company.

Favorite Memory from Lourdes
