I am told by one of our readers that we must not "Hail the Ivys" as they come with many maladjustive behaviors, potboiler scenarios and are not quite the best fit for all...but we know that, don't we? Always said at our Parent's Seminar, Farewell ceremonies.....but we still think it is worthy of us to commend students who beat the long odds of getting in, whether they attend or not. So to all, CONGRATS, wherever you choose to go!
It is good to have avid readers.
Many are making decisions. Finally got, king procrastinator, Taro, to make his shot, he heads to Deerfield! And Julia has chosen Duke...and yet, many more are whittling down their final decisions...Shanique Bailey - Vassar? Or Amherst? Liam - MIT or Stanford? Decisions, decisions???
Our Alums To our student Raianne Demetrius: She continues to fly the Versan flag high. Her GPA went up in the Neurobiology Department at College of Wooster, her Cheerleading Team went Varsity and they have been invited to the Men's Basketball Team banquet....and best of all, she made the Wooster Inn program, so she heads to Greece next May. It is a program that allows our students to visit different countries....Go #Team Raianne!
Raianne Demetrius, a former St. Andrew's student, is at one of my favorite small liberal arts college, Wooster in Ohio-(great for academics, pre-medecine, swimming, Business, and bagpipes to boot! smile....)
