More than 90 percent of graduates said they’ve decided on post-secondary plans
As we near the end of another school year, we are reminded that getting to graduation is a true testament of not only the student’s hard work, but that of the families, teachers and community members who helped them gain the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a future of their choosing.
This educational teamwork proved a success as we celebrate our more than 2,325 graduates this spring. The Class of 2022 has a bright future ahead of them, with more than 90 percent of graduates saying they’ve decided on their post-secondary plans - some off to college, and others starting their careers or joining one of the U.S. Military branches.
Below represents only a few of the honors from the Class of 2022 – congratulations to each and every graduate for their accomplishments during their time at Five Star Schools.
The class of 2022 received more than $25.7 million in scholarships as a recognition of their dedication and hard work. These scholarship dollars represent both full and partial academic or athletic scholarships for a large number of graduates. Below are a few of the many scholarship honors:
