Oh the Places They’ll Go!

It is hard to believe that the seniors’ last day of classes was this past Friday, April 28. Complete with Trinity Hall’s first ever senior pranks, a dress down day with their college shirts, and an emotional tribute from the junior class, it was certainly a favorite day for many in the community.

We are well into the first week of Advanced Placement (AP) testing, and our seniors are finishing up the final academic responsibilities of their high school career. As their AP tests conclude, they will begin their “Beyond the Hall” experience, a 45-hour internship, research opportunity, or community service venture they have planned.

On Monday, May 1, our seniors made their final college decisions, and we could not be more proud of the choices they have made. Our first 32 graduates were accepted into a total of 79 different colleges and universities, and have received over $3.1 million (and counting!) in merit-based scholarship awards. Taking our very first “college t-shirt photo” on Friday was exhilarating, watching each of our young ladies beaming as they proudly wore their new school name.

As a school community we are finishing the last of our historic “firsts.” For me personally, being a part of the college process with our first senior class has been an honor. I truly believe that each and every young woman is matriculating to the right school for her, where she will be able to grow and thrive, and share the many gifts we have been witness to during her years at Trinity Hall. I know I speak for many when I say I can’t wait to see what they accomplish next.
