Who Am I and Who Can I Become?: The Class of 2023

Our mission asks students to consider the question Who Am I and Who Can I Become?

Inspired by our faculty and guided by our exceptional team of college counselors, seniors are able to articulate their journeys of self-discovery through their college essays. This year's essays explored all sides of our students' experiences, from intellectually challenging academic projects to equally rewarding creative and extracurricular pursuits.
