The Children’s School is proud to send its fourth amazing class of graduates to high school. Our accomplished graduates are sought after and are attending a range of competitive private schools, with several taking advantage of excellent public school options.
We honor the Class of 2022 as they move from TCS student to alumni after their commencement ceremony on Thurs., May 26. We are proud of how this group of eighth graders has independently navigated the entire admissions process with perseverance, determination, and grace.
Our 25 graduates were accepted to a wide range of Atlanta-area schools – single-sex and co-ed, religious and non-religious, boarding, traditional and progressive. In fact, the 21 students who applied to independent schools received a total of 41 individual acceptances to 19 schools, with six of our 25 students committing to public school as their first choice!
We are excited to send students to their final choices at Academe of the Oaks, Atlanta Girls’ School, Dekalb School of the Arts, Galloway, Lakeside, Maynard Jackson High School, Midtown High School, Mt. Vernon School, The New School, North Atlanta High School, Pace Academy, Providence Day School (North Carolina), St. Pius X Catholic High School, Thacher School (California), and Woodward Academy.
Our high school counseling process begins the summer before eighth grade and continues throughout the school year with regular, individual check-ins with families, and high school guidance lessons facilitated by our Director of High School Counseling. Eighth grade teachers and other administrators play a critical role in supporting our students through the application process and essay writing, and advocating for each student’s best interests through letters of recommendation and evaluation forms. It truly takes a village, and the end result for this confident group of rising ninth graders speaks to the community investment in our graduates.
The Class of 2022 embodies the best of TCS – their charisma, bravery, commitment to social justice, and unique sincerity has been cherished and will be missed. We are tremendously proud of who they are and what they accomplished this year.
As they begin their next chapter, we are confident that they are not only uniquely prepared academically and social-emotionally, but excited to make their special mark on their next communities.
