RAISE YOUR GLASS: Congratulations to the Adroit Class of 2020!

Every year, we at The Adroit Journal support a brilliant class of high school seniors who 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, Harvard University leads the pack, claiming nine Adroit seniors for its incoming freshman class. Yale University follows, with seven Adroit seniors packing for New Haven.

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