2021 matriculation list final2

College Bound

by Elaine Lass

As May 1, the National Candi­dates Reply Date, has now passed, I would like to share a few thoughts about the college admis­sion cycle this year. It was unpar­al­leled in every imag­in­able way. Waverly seniors entered the college process during the pandemic, as well as while our country confronted a neces­sary social reck­on­ing. Both influ­enced the students’ college process. Repeat­edly, the class of 2021 regis­tered for ACT/​SATs, and repeat­edly, the test dates were cancelled, until finally stan­dard­ized testing was taken off the table for the first time. Appli­ca­tions were up all over the country and the Univer­sity of Cali­for­nia saw record break­ing numbers. Students were final­iz­ing lists and decid­ing about Early Deci­sion and Early Action without having visited the college campuses they were choos­ing. Through­out this adver­sity, I was contin­u­ally amazed by the 27 Waverly seniors’ matu­rity and resilience. Each of the seniors handled this very diffi­cult and tumul­tuous process with aplomb and grace. They have made all of us at Waverly extremely proud.

We cannot wait to watch and hear about their next steps as they move forward and leave Waverly, this special place that has been home to them for the last four years. Congrat­u­la­tions and much love and light, class of 2021!
