Class of 2017 Celebrates College Acceptances

The Class of 2017 recently celebrated National College Decision Day. The purpose of the day is to celebrate the senior’s choice of college, and to say thank you to the faculty who have supported the students in the college admission process.

At a special ceremony, students put a pin on a map in the College Advising Office highlighting their future alma mater. A class photo in their chosen college regalia was also a special part of the day. In a show of support from Covenant’s academic community, faculty and staff also wore their college regalia.

“At Covenant, we know that God has created everyone with a unique set of talents and abilities,” says  Head of Upper School Leslie Moeller. “We challenge our students to discover what they are created to do and then pursue it. The 57 students of the Covenant Class of 2017 have met this challenge. The diverse talents and passions that they have developed in their years here are taking them across the country and the globe to continue to create, invent, grow, share, compete and serve. They have chosen to pursue deeper studies in the arts, sciences, engineering, nursing and humanities and eight seniors will extend their high school athletics careers into college. It is always difficult to say goodbye to students that many of us have known and loved for so many years. But we are confident that this class’ demonstrated ability to think independently, question and challenge will carry them far. We are excited to see what God has in store for them.”
