WSA Class of 2018Students in the Class of 2018 are celebrating college success!  They were accepted at 44 four-year colleges and universities in the United States and abroad and were offered $1,901,730 in grants, awards and scholarships.

After commencement exercises on May 25 at the House of Awakened Culture in Suquamish, the newly-minted WSA alumni will be going in many different directions as they begin their undergraduate education at schools in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia.

On Thursday, May 17 - College Declaration Day at West Sound Academy - the members of the Class of 2018 announced their choices to WSA students and staff and signed the pennants of the colleges where they intend to enroll this fall. The banners will be hung in Parke Hall, where future WSA Upper School students will pass by them every day.
