(WKEF/WRGT) - Getting in to an Ivy League school is no small feat, so imagine a Liberty Township family's pride when their four sons were all accepted to Yale.

The Wade brothers, Nigel, Zach, Aaron and Nick will be heading off to Connecticut for school this fall, and chose the school because of its "extraordinary" financial aid package. Oh that's right -- we forgot to mention -- not only were the brothers accepted to Yale, they were also accepted to Harvard.

The family's story earned them attention from news outlets all across the globe. Today, Friday, June 16, the family will appear on the Steve Harvey show. Harvey called the story a gift from God, but went on to say it's the result of good parenting, "you have got to be proud," Harvey said to the Wade parents, Kim and Wade. Kim Wade, who happens to be a principal, said she and her husband worked to make sure their boys stayed focused during the summers. The boys' father, Wade, said he and his wife didn't give their boys many choices when they were young, "they didn't know what they wanted," he said and now he says, as a result, they do have choices.

During their appearance on Steve Harvey's show, each boy received a check made out for $5,000 to help with expenses.
