Congratulations to the class of 2021! This group of Bobcats spent their senior year learning remotely, which was certainly not what any of them expected. These bright and tenacious students took it all in stride and chose to look to the future.
"Even under normal circumstances, applying to college is stressful, to say the least. Add in a global pandemic, changes in standardized testing and other college requirements, and you get a senior year unlike any other. You never would have known anything different looking at this year's seniors," said Mr. Green, one of our College Guidance Coordinators. "They were quick to laugh and crack jokes, and overall maintained an unfailingly positive attitude; despite countless unique stressors that had never been present in the college application process before. This group of students were truly a joy to work with. I respect the positive attitude they displayed on a daily basis, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for them."
We are excited to share our current list of college acceptances for the class of 2021. Head of School Ms. Kolb, shared, "I am so proud of this group of individuals. Our list of college acceptances is always impressive; but the positivity and determination shown by the class of 2021 was especially inspiring. Watching how they managed this challenging year gives me all the confidence in the world about the success they will see in the future."
Please join us in joyful congratulations for our seniors. Their hard work, intellectual curiosity, kindness, spirit, and ideas will carry them forward, and we look forward to their learning about their contributions to this world. We are Bobcat proud!
