Every Student, Every Teacher, Every Day: Seniors Finalize College Choices
Every Student, Every Teacher, Every Day: Seniors Finalize College Choices

With their Kent Denver careers coming to a close, members of the Class of 2017 are savoring their final weeks of high school and looking forward to new adventures in the fall.

May 1 was National Candidates Reply Day, or the deadline for seniors to respond to offers of admission from colleges and universities.

Kent Denver's seniors have now made their decisions and are planning to attend 73 institutions of higher learning in the United States, Canada, Scotland and Switzerland next year.

"Our students did a great job applying to colleges, and our matriculation list is wonderful—strong schools that fit our kids well," said Upper School Division Head Dr. Eric Chandler. "Our new college counseling model—with three full-time, dedicated and professional college counselors—has proven most effective. My thanks to our college counseling team, and my congratulations to our seniors!"

Please note that this list is current as of May 3, 2017. A final college matriculation list will be shared with the Kent Denver community in August.
