Georgetown Seniors: The Class of 2021

The graduating seniors of Georgetown High School have closed the door on their high school careers and moved forward; ready to make their mark in the world. As a school district, we are incredibly proud of the class of 2021 and all of their accomplishments.

At Georgetown, we value the importance of equipping our students with a work credential and college credits in addition to the high school diploma. In order to achieve this goal, students have the option of earning a career technical certificate (to prepare for the workforce) or earning college credits to prepare for post-secondary education.

The Georgetown senior class had twenty seniors who earned a career certificate from one of the Southern Hills Joint Vocational School’s programs. The senior class had forty-five members who completed at least one college class during their high school career. Seven of those forty-five students earned the equivalent of one semester’s worth of college credit and fourteen of the forty-five seniors earned the equivalent of at least one year’s worth of college credit!

The Georgetown seniors earned a total of 1,117 college credit hours. The average tuition for one college credit hour (among colleges in our area) is approximately 450.00 dollars. Our seniors saved their families and themselves, approximately 502,650.00 dollars in college tuition! This is an incredible advantage for the students of the Georgetown Exempted Village Schools.

Our seniors also earned 1.3 million dollars in local scholarships and scholarships from colleges and/or universities.

At Georgetown, we are a district who aims to prepare students for the next step. This process begins the moment a student walks into kindergarten. From year one, our goal is to graduate students and prepare students to be successful at the next level. As a district we are continually searching for best practices to better bridge the gap between elementary school, to middle school and into high school in order to ensure that every student earning a Georgetown Exempted Village School District diploma is not just prepared for the future, but one step ahead. The class of 2021 is indeed prepared to seize their future. They are prepared and ready due to the incredible team of professionals committed to educating students and the dedication of students and families each step of the way.

Graduation is a bittersweet moment. We have been working as a team together for the past 13 years and now these seventy two seniors will now take seventy two unique roads to define their own success. What a special group of young men and women. We are excited to see them take the next steps in their lives.
