Class of 2018 College Admits

School News
April 27, 2018- Graduation is less than one month away and soon, our seniors will be alumni. This morning, the class of 2018 was immortalized in VMS history with the unveiling of their formal portrait. 



Earlier this week, Head of School Mike Imperi and VMS College Counselor Marisa Ferrara shared the list of schools to which our seniors have been admitted with the VMS community. The letter that accompanied this list included the following reflection on the college search process which eloquently articulates one of the essential goals of the college search process and of our school as a whole. 

"Essential to the {college search] journey is personal reflection with guided support to cultivate a thoughtful, well put-together application/portfolio for submission to colleges...Our hope for them, more than any success correlated to their declared college of choice, is that each can sit back, feel happy about their personal accomplishments, and can adamantly and confidently say they know themselves better now than when they began the college process."

Keeping in mind that no two students’ lists are the same, the following is an alphabetical list of all schools to which these seniors collectively have been admitted.  A number in parentheses after a college on the list below refers to the multiple of students accepted to that school from this class.
