Getting the Yes: College Admission at Mid-Year

As the 34 members of the St. Andrew’s-Sewanee Class of 2021 return to school for their final semester, 29 seniors return with the assurance that college acceptance is already in the bag.

Eighty-five percent of the class submitted at least one college application prior to the new year.
