The Class of 2022
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 2022 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 thirty-eight seniors who earned a career certificate from one of the Southern Hills Joint Vocational School’s programs. The senior class had thirty-seven members who completed at least one college class during their high school career. Seven of those thirty-seven students earned the equivalent of one semester’s worth of college credit and seventeen of the thirty-seven seniors earned the equivalent of at least one year’s worth of college credit!
The Georgetown seniors earned a total of 1,050 college credit hours. The average tuition for one college credit hour (among colleges in our area) is approximately $500.00 dollars. Our seniors saved their families, and themselves, approximately $525,000.00 dollars in college tuition! This is an incredible advantage for the students of the Georgetown Exempted Village Schools.
In the end, our seniors combined have earned over 120 different scholarships totaling $1,551,245 dollars.
The class of 2022 also had six graduates who have elected to serve their country by joining various branches of the Armed Services.
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 junior high 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 2022 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.
