Illinois State Scholars represent the top 10 percent of high school seniors, from 757 different high schools across the state. Students receiving the honor possess strong academic potential and are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank. The ISAC, the state agency committed to helping to make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, first introduced the Illinois State Scholar recognition program in 1958.
