BASIS Independent Schools students continue to prove they are the future leaders of our generation. This year, graduates across our entire network of schools—from New York City and the Washington, D.C. Metro Area to California—achieved notable acceptances to some of the top colleges and universities not only in the U.S., but across the world.
Congratulations to the Class of 2022 for their determination and success in the college application process this year. The list below is indicative of their varied interests and talents. While additional acceptances are still possible from waitlists, all seniors have secured a spot at an amazing institution of higher education for the next four years.
In the world of college counselors, college rankings are a hot topic, or more accurately, helping students find the right college for them without consideration of rank. We know that a high rank does not promise a perfect match. Rankings are created to serve the college, not the student.
BASIS Independent Schools students continue to score impressive admission to some of the world’s best colleges and universities. From the Washington, D.C. Metro Area and New York City to California, students across the BASIS Independent Schools network have proven that even in the face of adversity and adaptation, hard work and commitment can reap incredible results.
We are so proud of our Class of 2021 and honored to share their current list of college acceptances. Additional acceptances are still possible; however, this list is too good to wait.
Please join us in joyful congratulations for our soon-to-be-graduates. Their hard work, perseverance, creativity, curiosity, kindness, and spirit will carry them forward in college and beyond.
I remember hitting submit for my last college application on January 5th, feeling such a relief I could go back to enjoying life. After 16 different applications that had deadlines spanning from November to January, I just could not wait for my immediate future to be decided by my application readers.
The following blog is repurposed with minor edits from our sister school, BASIS Independent Silicon Valley. Please join with us in congratulating their newest graduating seniors on their many achievements and in wishing them well as they head off to some of the top colleges and universities in the world.
A round of applause for the Class of 2018, please! Our soon-to-be graduates have completed their final year at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, and we could not be more honored to have had the opportunity to guide them to this pivotal point in their lives.
Not only have these students conquered a rigorous senior year filled with capstone courses, which required a deep dive into high-level content, many of our seniors participated in Senior Projects or AP Research Projects. Throughout it all, they worked hard to find and apply to colleges that they believe will be the best fit for their skills and interests. As a result of their extraordinary efforts—not just this year, but through their entire academic journeys—our Class of 2018 has gained entry to some of the oldest and most selective universities: California Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and Stanford University, just to name a few.
Read on for the complete list, and please help us congratulate our 2018 Bobcats!
We have finished our tallying and are delighted to share the impressive acceptances of our Class of 2017 BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Bobcats! We are excited for and proud of what these 20 graduates, who joined us in 10th grade, have achieved.
Take a look, below, at just a sampling of their acceptances.
We're proud to share some exciting news out of our sister school, BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, who just last week rounded off their college admissions season! Keep reading for the statistics on this year's college admissions, hot off the press from the BASIS Independent Silicon Valley blog:
Believe it or not, the end of the school year will be here before we know it. Our hallways are buzzing with excitement and anticipation as we get ready to celebrate a big first for us, not just here at our school, but for BASIS Independent Schools as a whole: our first graduating class! This first senior class in Silicon Valley is composed of a driven group of 14 students, since our admissions team was very selective in identifying candidates qualified to enter the high school as upperclassmen given the challenging curriculum.
With our first graduating class comes our first round of college admissions. At our State of the School address in February, we shared with participants some of the preliminary results of the tireless work of our College Counselor, Mr. Chris Wilcox, and our students as they worked together to fulfill college dreams. In their senior year, BASIS Independent Schools students take a daily College Counseling course and place a large focus of their time ensuring they have their best foot forward. We are pleased to share that all college admissions results are in: our very first graduating class has gained admission to some of the top universities in the nation!
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! McLean is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
