One of the most exciting (and stressful!) times during a high school senior’s year is deciding which college or university to attend in the fall, and is the right fit for them academically, personally, and financially. But then...it's time to celebrate that choice! During the week of May 12th to 19th, Bright Prospect held our series of College Decision Days at the nine high schools we serve in Pomona and Ontario. This year, 275 high school seniors are graduating and will move on to the next chapter in their lives.
The seniors announced their college decision in front of their peers, family members, school and district staff and administrators, special guests, and the Bright Prospect staff. They expressed many emotions during their speeches ranging from nervousness to pride and gratitude, and they thanked those who helped them overcome obstacles along the way. Many thanked their parents for supporting them and their teachers, counselors, and Bright Prospect coaches for guiding and believing in them. This year, Bright Prospect students were accepted into schools including Pitzer College, Swarthmore College, Princeton University, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, University of La Verne, Cal Poly Pomona, Cal State Fullerton, Georgetown University, and Carnegie Mellon University, along with many other UC's, Cal States and community colleges. Bright Prospect would like to congratulate the graduating class of 2017 on their accomplishments! We will be there for them throughout their college years and wish them much success in their journeys.
