“Finding the right fit is always a top priority in college admissions for our seniors, and this class has done an excellent job,” St. Margaret’s Director of College Counseling Roland Allen said. “Many students started the process with a clear first-choice college, thus, close to 25 percent of our students were admitted as binding early decision applicants. Others were drawn to colleges because of academic specialties or honors programs. We are confident that our graduates will thrive and will lead and serve in their college communities as they did here at St. Margaret's. On behalf of my colleagues in the college counseling office, Amy Warren and Jeff Jablonski, we congratulate them on their many accomplishments and look forward to hearing about many more to come.”
