    In 2000, Dr. Robert J. Sternberg, a nationally renowned psychologist, began working with students in Choate Rosemary Hall’s Icahn Scholars Program to develop a test model of how to maximize students’ prospects for success. Dr. Sternberg and his team of researchers created an assessment tool for admission and placement in secondary schools that will enhance the prediction of academic and other forms of success and increase diversity of entering classes. The assessment tool was not meant to replace traditional analytical measures, but rather to introduce the importance of other factors in predicting success. In 2004, Choate sponsored its first conference on “Successful Intelligence” for secondary school and college admission directors.
