Class of 2018 Matriculation List

May 1 marks an important day of the year for college-bound high school seniors across the nation. By May 1, also known as National College Signing Day, seniors must accept an offer of admission and send a deposit to the school of their choice.

Championed by former First Lady Michelle Obama and hosted by schools, organizations, community leaders and influencers across the country, College Signing Day is a chance to rally around students to show support and inspire young people to pursue their education past high school. For Schuler Scholars it is an especially exciting time since many will be the first in their families to attend college – and not just any college – these students will attend some of the most selective colleges and universities in the nation!

Today we applaud our 70 seniors for their hard work, perseverance and success and celebrate with them as they take this next step in their lives. Congratulations Schuler Class of 2018!
