Celebrating our Seniors' College Plans

46 Seniors Accepted into 85 Schools Across the Globe

By: Heather Jeter, Director of College Counseling

Throughout the United States, May 1 is a major day of celebration for many high school seniors: College Declaration Day. At Steward, we celebrate this exciting day with senior class photos and a special luncheon. Our seniors officially announce where they will be attending by wearing shirts displaying their choices. The 46 members of the Class of 2019 have navigated the college application and decision process with enthusiasm and care. We are very proud of their accomplishments!

As in previous years, all members of the senior class were admitted to four-year colleges and universities. Acceptances came from 85 schools in 22 states, the District of Columbia, and Spain. Seniors have chosen to attend 30 different institutions in 11 states, DC, and Spain.

Five seniors will be playing collegiate sports: one for baseball, two for men’s basketball, one for women's volleyball, and one for women’s lacrosse. Additionally, four members of this class are committed to majors in the arts, specifically: two for musical theater, one for arts administration, and one for visual arts. Many seniors were also offered direct admission to competitive major programs, including: business administration, international relations, nursing, engineering, and computer science.

More information about this class’s accomplishments will be forthcoming in this summer’s issue of Year in Review. In the meantime, please congratulate our seniors on their choices!
