Crescent School's newest Men of Character, the 97 members of the Class of 2021, are now preparing for the first steps of their post-graduation journey.
“We are so proud of all our graduates, who persevered under the stressful conditions imposed by the pandemic in their final years at Crescent. They also faced more competition for university applications than ever before. Next year, as they explore their interests in a variety of post-secondary plans, we know the resilience they developed this year will serve them well,” says Alison Champ, Guidance & University Counsellor.
“We are confident that our students are ready for the rigours and challenges that the next chapter of their lives will bring,” says Guidance & University Counsellor Aggie Maksimowska. “They proved that they can go with the flow, adapt, and change, but most of all, they are pursuing their interests and their passions.”
Here are some highlights of the post-secondary plans for the Class of 2021:
