Early Apps Yield Good News for Seniors


It was a busy fall for the 119 members of the Class of 2019 and their college counselors. Nearly 97% of the class submitted at least one early application and seniors have already received acceptance letters to 86 outstanding colleges and universities through Early Action, Early Decision, Restrictive Early Action, and rolling admission plans. Click here to see the current list of college acceptances.

"We are proud of the range of schools our seniors are considering," write college counselors Matt Doyle, Jessica Raab and Katie Thomas. "Starting with seminars in the spring of their sophomore year, we began the process of introducing them to the wide-ranging possibilities that exist. We continued to work with them throughout the entirety of their junior year, helping students self-reflect and find schools that match characteristics that matter to them. As seniors, the smart and balanced college lists that they have created show just how much attention and respect the students have given to their applications. We are thrilled by the early results and are excited to see what the rest of the process has in store for the Class of 2019!"

The list of colleges offering admission to Kent Denver seniors will grow over the next few months as regular decision results are released, and we will share more good news as our seniors make their final choices!
