Reflecting on the journey of the Class of 2024, Laura Schroeder, Director of College Counseling at The John Cooper School remarked, “Although the Class of 2024 members will be heading across the globe to begin their next steps, they know that it’s about the journey, not the destination. After all, the steps in their Cooper journeys—their effort, thought, and leadership—led them to this point, and this work will also be instrumental in their future successes at these colleges and in their life beyond.”
Adding to the excitement of National College Decision Day, the Senior Countdown tradition sparked excitement and joy as the students gathered in the Bayless Courtyard, marking the final minute of classes before bidding farewell to their high school days.
