The Class of 2024 prepares to depart to 73 colleges in 21 states and six countries

RE’s Class of 2024 will be matriculating at 73 colleges and universities in 21 states (and the District of Columbia) and six countries in 2024-25. Ransom Everglades seniors not only will attend traditionally sought-after schools – they received acceptances to all of the Ivy League schools, MIT and Stanford – they also will matriculate at highly selective liberal arts colleges, acclaimed public research institutions, extremely competitive drama/music schools, highly regarded international institutions and universities with renowned specialty programs.
On May 1 – National College Decision Day – Ransom Everglades seniors assembled wearing "I ♥ 24" shirts on the Touzet Patio of La Brisa to hear congratulations and words of encouragement from Head of School Rachel Rodriguez, Executive Director of College Counseling Jason Locke and Director of College Counseling Patrick Tassoni. COO and Interim Head of the Upper School David Clark '86 also attended to cheer on the seniors.

"We are so incredibly proud of you," Rodriguez said. "Know that all your choices just help you on a different path, and there's no one path better than another – there are just individual and unique paths ... On behalf of Mr. Clark and our professional community, we just want to say congratulations!"

The seniors enjoyed RE cookies, took photos, and spent time compiling advice and well wishes that will be digitally archived for future classes – a tradition begun with the Class of 2023. Though the students plan to wear their college T-shirts for a photo later in May, they gathered for the Decision Day event in the Class of 2024 shirts to show their appreciation to their classmates and school.

Before departing, the students posed for photos with signs showing their chosen fields of study.
