College choices for the George School Class of 2018 celebrate the diverse interests and strengths of the George School student body. In STEM fields, George School graduates will go on to study at Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Georgia Tech, Harvard, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Vanderbilt. In the liberal arts, members of the Class of 2018 will study at Bates, Brown, Bryn Mawr, Guilford, Mount Holyoke, Occidental, Skidmore College, University of Richmond, and Vassar.

Other students plan to study film at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and music recording at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin, architecture at Rice University, and animation at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Several George School students will also continue their education abroad at universities including Durham University in the United Kingdom, University of Montreal in Canada, and the dual degree program at the University of British Columbia with Sciences Po in Canada and France.

“There is much for the George School Class of 2018 to be proud of,” said Beth Ann Burkmar, director of college counseling. “Not only their growth over their time here, but their tremendous accomplishments as illustrated by their college choices. This year, the Class of 2018 applied to three hundred and twenty-one different colleges across the United States and abroad.”

The College Counseling office hosted representatives from over two-hundred colleges and universities this fall, giving seniors many opportunities to learn more about his or her ideal school. College Counseling also hosted an evening program for seniors and their parents titled The Application Process, the Trends and What to Expect in the fall to share insight with parents and students about the college application process with special guest speaker, Katie Chaszczewski, senior associate director of admission at the University of Chicago.
