How do I leave a legacy?
Support and events to create life-long relationships.
Preparing for what’s next – Senior year is about leaving a legacy and making memories that will last a lifetime. Our counseling team helps students slow down and take the time to meaningfully say thank you to their families, teachers, and one another. As they prepare to embark on their next adventure, they’ll have built the capacity to develop long-term professional and personal relationships.
Senior Retreat – Before the first day of school, all seniors attend a two-day retreat with the college counselors to craft college essays, fine-tune resumes, and jump-start college application work.
Monthly Senior Breakfast – Provides time and space for seniors to catch up with one another and share their progress, while receiving valuable information from their counselors and building community.
Senior Traditions – Mount Vernon has many senior traditions from the “I got into college!” bell, putting a flag on the map for their choice school when they decide to matriculate to a college, to decorating their senior shirts at the end of the year.
