RAISE YOUR GLASS: Congratulations to the Adroit Class of 2018!

Every year, we at The Adroit Journal support a brilliant class of high school seniors apply and make the transition from high school writers into college writers. We’re honored to share the matriculation list of this year’s class of senior mentorship students and staff readers!

This year, Yale University leads the pack, claiming nine Adroit seniors for its incoming freshman class. Harvard University follows, with six Adroit seniors packing for Cambridge. Next in line, Stanford University has four Adroit seniors Palo Alto-bound.

We wish each of the below forty-nine students the best as they embark on their next chapters, and hope they’ll stay in touch! (We have a feeling they will.)
