College Matriculation

Congratulations to the Class of 2019

One of the key benefits of the King program is the many different opportunities we offer students to discover and pursue their passions as they grow as learners and people. Thanks to the tireless guidance and support of their teachers, college counselors and families, the successes they created for themselves in the classroom, on the field, and on the stage helped them earn acceptances to the best schools in the country and abroad. Just as importantly, they achieved these successes while prioritizing their relationships with each other to create a strong, healthy social culture in their class.

Colleges have recognized within the Class of 2019 future scientists, artists, athletes, urban planners, pilots, professors, and so much more. Each student has made intentional decisions about his/her/their future, and where best to spend the next four years of their lives pursuing their dreams to reach their goals. The members of the Class of 2019 have distinguished themselves in numerous ways including, but not limited to, the following:

  • National Merit Scholarship winners
  • Competitive merit scholarships covering full tuition across four years of college
  • Acceptance to highly competitive programs in science and engineering, business, and the arts
  • NCAA Athletic Scholarships

Hear from members of the class as they announce their college acceptances.

JENNA MACRAE '19

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

"I am so grateful to King School; it really was a team effort from my teachers to the Administrators to my college counselor, Mr. Volain. My teachers not only prepared me academically for the college application process, but also took the time to get to know me as a person. The college guidance process starts early at King, as teachers set high expectations for their students and create a plan to help you meet those expectations. Princeton was my dream and they helped make it a reality. I am confident that King has thoroughly prepared me for college and I am excited to be challenged academically and athletically at Princeton. I found King to be a warm and welcoming environment where students support fellow students. I came to King in 10th grade and felt instantly comfortable. My teachers and friends are extremely understanding of my challenging academic and athletic schedule, and support me so that I can thrive in both aspects. Also, our new Head of School, Dr. Karen Eshoo, is an energetic and collaborative leader who is off to a strong start. I believe she has a great vision for King's future and I look forward to coming back to visit King and seeing the growth of the King community."

ANNA PATTEN '19

COLBY COLLEGE

"I feel very prepared for my next step at Colby College thanks to the King College Counseling department. My College Counselor was always there to help and calm me down and hand out chocolate when I got stressed. I really appreciate King's four year approach to guiding kids through the whole college process as it really helped me. I can't wait to be in Maine next year!"

PAUL NOUJAIM '19

DUKE UNIVERSITY

"From compiling my list to celebrating my acceptance, King college counseling was with me each step of the way. I've been at King since PreK and I'm thinking about studying Philosophy and Economics in college. I'm beyond excited to begin the next chapter of my life at Duke University."

BLAIR HOLEY '19

THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

"I was offered the perfect amount of flexibility and support from the College Counseling office. I never felt like my wants were being over powered, and Ms. Landis was always incredibly insightful and leading me towards success. I am confident that William & Mary is the perfect school for me! I would not have been able to make it to this point without her guidance."

JAMES HILTON '19

COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

"I would not be where I am today without the help of my college counselor, Ms. Prince, and all the members of the college counseling office. They provided me with all the information I needed and more. Thanks to King, I look at the academic rigor ahead and feel prepared for what is to come. King has taught me a lot and has given me the skills and techniques I will need to succeed in college. Overall, King has been a huge part of my journey to college, and without their outstanding support and guidance, both with academics and outside commitments to rowing, I would not be the person I am today."

HANNAH BERRICK '19

WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN ST. LOUIS

"The King College Counseling office has been very supportive. They made sure that I was confident in meeting my deadlines and helped me put my best self forward. I love PreCalculus BC and have formed a lifelong mentorship with my teacher, Dr. K. She made me feel confident in my abilities not only as a math student but as a student in general and made sure that I pushed myself to my full abilities. I am thankful for King's encouragement and I am thrilled to become a WashU Bear next year!"

HOPE DESCHAPELLES '19

VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY

"King College Counseling provided me with all the resources I needed in order to be confident when I "hit send." One of the impressive aspects of this process at King is that it starts as early as freshman year. Whether it be editing supplements, discussing strategy, or calming nerves, the counselors' doors were always open; a steady support system in a time of uncertainty."
