College Acceptances

By Neale Gay, College Counselor

The Academy at Charlemont seeks to graduate young men and women prepared to be lifetime learners and productive global citizens.  One path to achieving this goal is through our individualized approach to college counseling.  We are committed to helping each student find the school that’s right for them.  This process officially begins in the junior year when students meet as a group and individually to begin exploring these fundamental questions:

What does each want their senior year to look like and the following four years? How will those experiences build on the foundations of ethical leadership and engaged citizenry learned at The Academy?

Having now completed the process, the 17 graduating members of The Academy’s Class of 2014 have been accepted to a wide range of colleges and universities.  This speaks to their intellectual curiosity, their academic acumen, their diverse interests – and the strength of a dedicated and talented faculty who have allowed each student to find their voice and speak their mind.
