In its January newsletter, La Cañada Unified released the statistics for the La Cañada High School class of 2011. There were 375 LCHS graduates in June of 2011, excluding five foreign exchange students. Ninety-eight percent have enrolled at colleges throughout the country and abroad, of whom 84% chose four-year colleges. (See www.lcusd.com — click on “District Newsletter.”)
As February begins, high school seniors from the class of 2012 have completed most of their college applications and have transmitted their midyear final-exam grades.
At Flintridge Prep, between 40 and 50% of the senior class applied “early action” or “early decision” and the college counseling office is recuperating from what it calls the December craziness. The applications are in, but the work continues.
