Class of 2018: College & Statistical Profile

The class of 2018 applied to over 300 different colleges and universities. Rather than look at each university individually, SI categorizes them based on Barron's evaluations and our Counselors' experiences. There is some overlap between groups. For example, UC Berkeley is both a UC and a Most Selective University. Boston College is both a Jesuit university and a Very Selective university. (Click here to view the full list.) In addition, SI breaks out certain populations for further examination:

  • The Class of 2018
  • Magna cum Laude students 2018
  • Cum Laude Students 2018
  • Financial Aid Students 2018
  • Traditionally Under-represented Minorities 2018
  • First Generation College Bound Students 2018
  • Magis Middle School Graduates 2018
  • LD students 2018

Links to long-term trends for each group are available below.

SI lives up to its name of “college preparatory” in the final analysis. Nearly every SI graduate attends college, with the great majority entering a four-year university. Each year SI sends students to the East Coast Ivy League schools and the preeminent West Coast schools including Stanford University and UC Berkeley. Typically 98 percent attend a 4-year college and 3 percent attend a 2-year college. (Here’s a list of the colleges students attended by the Class of 2017.) Our goal is to help all students find the college that is right for them. Our counseling staff can provide students with the resources they need to find the university that fits them best.
