172 Class of 2020 Graduates Enrolled at a Top 100 College or University


Randolph High School is devoted to excellence in teaching and learning. Every student at Randolph High School is recognized as a unique individual working towards their purpose and passion as future young adults. We educate the whole student by offering our students a wide array of programs, specialized services, extracurricular activities and challenging courses in STEM, the Visual and Performing Arts, and the Humanities. Our rigorous curriculum, which includes 30 Advanced Placement courses, is facilitated by award-winning faculty who foster intellectual discovery in a collaborative, supportive environment. Each course is immersive, driving every student to engage in thoughtful discourse and inquisition. As problem-based learners, Randolph students develop strong critical thinking skills which will help them become respected experts in their future chosen field or specialty.


U.S. News and World Report annually ranks National Universities and Liberal Arts Colleges. Schools in the National Universities category offer a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master's and Ph.D. programs. Liberal Arts Colleges emphasize undergraduate education and award at least half of their degrees in the liberal arts fields of study. Schools are ranked according to their performance across a set of widely accepted indicators of excellence including outcomes, expert opinion, faculty resources, student excellence, financial resources, and alumni giving. We are pleased to announced that 172 students, 43% of the Class of 2020, will attend a top 100 ranked National University or Liberal Arts College this fall. Columbia University, MIT, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, Rice University, Georgetown University, Washington University in St. Louis, Colgate University, Rhode Island School of Design and the United States Naval Academy are among some of the many prestigious institutions our students will attend as they begin the next chapter of their journey as young adults.


College is not the only pathway students may choose to pursue post graduation, and there are also certainly many exemplary colleges and universities outside of the U.S. News Top 100 rankings. Many of our graduates will also directly enter the workforce, enlist in the military, attend a technical school, or find another worthy calling. No matter what path an individual chooses, our students depart Randolph High School with the leadership abilities to thrive in a complex, interconnected and changing world.
