College Declaration Day for WSA Class of 2016

May 23, 2016
By Susan Trower

WSA Class of 2016 - Espen Swanson photoWest Sound Academy seniors and their families researched colleges, went on campus visits, and consulted with Mrs. Freeman, WSA's College Counselor.  Applications and essays were sent off to colleges and universities during fall and winter of this school year.  Over the past few months the eagerly awaited acceptance letters and scholarship offers have been arriving in letters and email.

Now the choice:  where to attend?  Monday, May 23 was College Declaration Day at WSA, and the members of the Class of 2016 signed the pennants of the colleges where they intend to enroll this fall.
