La. High School Goes Viral for College Acceptance Videos Bursting with #BlackExcellence

A Louisiana high school is on a roll this month after a series of college acceptance videos have taken the internet by storm. TM Landry College Prep in Breaux Bridge, La. has nine graduating students who have been accepted into universities — mostly Ivy Leagues — and social media is loving it.

The school posted the first acceptance video on Friday, Dec. 8, which saw students erupt into excitement as senior Alexander Little was accepted into Stanford University. But the sensation began when Little’s younger brother, Aryton Little got the same huge reaction — with chants of “three-peat” — to learning he’d been accepted to Harvard University.

It’s the third year in a row that the Ivy League has accepted a TM Landry student.

“It still haven’t [sic] been calm since my brother’s acceptance Friday, but my brother and I realized that we have done the impossible,” Aryton told The Huffington Post Wednesday, Dec. 13. “Many of my classmates are also getting their decisions this week. I honestly don’t know when the excitement will die down at this point.”
