Seniors & Colleges

Graduates 2009
One of the paramount concerns of students and their families is the question of preparation for college, for both admissions and subsequent achievement. GW Community School has established an enviable record of success in helping students direct themselves towards colleges and universities that represent the “best fit” according to individual interests, talents, and capabilities. And the acceptance rate for GWCS students is impressive by any standard. Some students may be impressively goal-directed and career-bound by the time they finish their studies at GWCS, while others may benefit in particular form a college that specifically works to provide a great, supportive transition and freshman experience. Sure, we’re proud of our kids who “rack up” acceptances to elite, Ivy League schools. But we also know that a first-rate education can be acquired in many places and many ways.

Seniors 2014

Seniors LakeAnna Silly 2013 (2)The GWCS Class of 2014 dove right into college applications and essays in their English Senior Seminar class.  They are gearing up for a three day essay writing retreat at Lake Anna in mid October.   Students and teachers stay in rustic cabins on the lake away from distractions and surrounded by supportive friends and teachers. The first few months of the year seniors are busy submitting applications, keeping up with school work, and participating in various school activities.  By mid winter most are done with applications and are stunned at the realization that their senior year is almost over.  Early spring, college acceptances arrive (see list) and the whole senior class and a group of teachers celebrate the year with a week long beach trip to Corolla, NC.  The senior beach trip is a week of creating memories that last a life time.  The year comes to a close with graduation on Saturday, June 14, 2014.
