Celebrating the Class of 2020 & Early College Acceptances

Our class of 2020 has great news to share! Our seven seniors have already heard back from colleges, and so far, it’s been nothing but positive news. Two students were accepted to their first-choice colleges: Skidmore and Connecticut College. Others have earned early acceptances to the following schools:

  • Drexel
  • NC State University College of Engineering
  • Northeastern
  • Simmons Nursing
  • UC Boulder
  • UMass Amherst School of Nursing
  • University of Michigan
  • UNC Chapel Hill
  • URI Nursing

The entire community rejoices in their hard work and much-deserved reward as we await more acceptances!

The seniors will continue with their special senior year programming, which begins every year in September and continues through graduation the following August. We had another successful Fall Senior Retreat in November, during which all seniors and their parents gather for a multi-day, off-site retreat with our clinical team. This year’s class was noted for having a particular cohesiveness — a bonding and closeness typically not observed until the spring senior retreat. The families and students came well-prepared and armed with a lot of snacks!  Amidst a beautiful boutique-style cottage resort overlooking Pontoosuc Lake in Lanesborough, MA, we laughed, cried, and processed what each senior and family needs to focus on this year.

Jovanina Pagano, a clinician who leads the senior year seminar, will continue to guide the senior class through issues such as: family dynamics, finances, sexuality, substance use, social media, peer relationships, and other important topics related to the transition into college and young adulthood. The Spring Senior Retreat will be held in April 2020 and focuses more on the concrete decisions and plans for summer and college life. 

As always, we encourage our seniors to consider how to step out of their comfort zones before they leave the castle. For some, this might mean getting a job or internship in town, for others, it might mean taking a college course or participating in a socially-driven community activity that pushes them to make new relationships. And still for others, it could mean focusing on the challenge of making deeper, more vulnerable relationships with their peers in the castle. Our seniors are currently working with faculty and clinicians to devise a tailored plan for their spring semester.

We are so happy and proud of the strong class of seniors this year! Though we always recognize them for their academic achievements, we are also very clear that we see them as whole people — and it is their moral leadership within the community, their friendships, and their personal fulfillment that truly delights us all!

    Nobody has reported back yet with how it went for them but my hunch is that whatever your go-to 1:1 flour is will work; this cake seems forgiving and flexible. Madlin Reinhard Eusebio
