Celebrating more than $4.6 million in reported merit scholarships and awards, the 24 graduates in The Colorado Springs School’s Class of 2020 are prepared for a dynamic world.
The Class of 2020 earned an ACT of 28 and SAT of 1298, while peers across the country reported a national average on 20.8 on the ACT and 1059 on the SAT. One student earned the status of a National Merit Scholar Commended student and 16 students in the class were members of the Ursa chapter of the National Honor Society, in addition to excelling in academics, athletics, and as artists. Students in the class gained acceptances to 116 colleges and universities. Students in the Class of 2020 draw from 12 zip codes throughout the Pikes Peak region and included three international students.
While their senior year was disrupted by a global pandemic, these students faced challenges with grace and flexibility. They completed their classes through e-Learning, reimagined Senior Capstones, and took Advanced Placement exams online. Not to mention the Class of 2020 embraced unique ways of celebrating end-of-year traditions with online award ceremonies, senior tribute night, and individual, socially-distanced diploma conferment ceremonies.
