2016 College Acceptances

This class was the most adventurous in SEM history...

42 seniors applied to 198 unique institutions from Hawaii, to California, to Texas, to DC, to Canada, and the UK.

The students of the Class of 2016 have truly found their best fits at every kind of college. Our nine Cum Laude students are going to Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Yale University, Georgetown University, Colgate University, Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University, Canisius College, and John Carroll University. Our students are going to study drama at Tisch, forensics at St. Edward’s (Austin TX), accounting at Skidmore, journalism at Ithaca College, math at RPI, and pre-law at American; to fence at Ohio State and play soccer at St. John Fisher. This class applied to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), women's colleges, art schools, engineering schools, and liberal arts colleges; both big, city universities and small, leafy colleges.

SEM encourages girls to think big, think adventurously, and yet to think deeply personally about their futures. Where will I be happiest? Where will I be most fulfilled? You can't answer this without knowing yourself well. The four years girls spend at SEM are explorations of literature, science, art, athletics, community and of course, self, and as they ready themselves for this momentous next step, we know they are well-prepared because of their SEM experience.

Congratulations Class of 2016!
