As the end of the year approaches, we wanted to express our excitement for our seniors as they say goodbye to Hutchison and begin their journeys at colleges and universities across the nation and around the world. We are so proud of the class of 2017!
Some hallmark characteristics of the Class of 2017 are the girls’ deeply compassionate spirit, strength, and tenacity - along with the energy, talents, creativity, and student leadership they have brought to Hutchison. These same qualities were evident in their college explorations. With confidence and determination, these Hutchison girls gained impressive admission, scholarship, and honors college offers.
Members of the Class of 2017 explored and pursued admission at a wide variety of colleges and universities. This fall, members of the senior class will attend 33 unique colleges in 16 states and the United Kingdom. In addition to traditionally popular schools such as the University of Mississippi, Southern Methodist University, and Vanderbilt University, seniors were admitted to such diverse schools as Agnes Scott College, the University of Cambridge, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Cornell University, to name a few.
This year’s seniors were awarded more than $11.9 million in scholarships over four years. 88 of these scholarship offers are worth $50,000 or more, and 33 offers worth $100,000 or more. They also received 54 offers of acceptance to Honors programs at 16 different schools.
With the help of our dedicated college counseling team and school administrators, our seniors have made thoughtful and informed decisions about which colleges will best serve their individual interests and talents, where they will be challenged, learn from inspiring professors, develop life-long friendships, and enrich campus life through their academic, service, and social contributions. We look forward to seeing where their journeys take them from here!
