Ten Applied – Ten Accepted!

Ten members of the Westminster 2016 Senior Class applied to the University of Georgia for admission and all ten received letters of acceptance for the 2016-17 school year!  This is quite an accomplishment given the standards that UGA has for incoming freshmen.   Below are some of the statistics from the UGA website.

  • UGA admitted approximately 12,200 students.
  • UGA Calculated Grade Point Average mid-range/average:  3.91 – 4.17, with a 4.03 average.  Please remember this is not the GPA students see on their high school transcript, but rather the GPA that UGA recalculates for everyone based on the core academic courses taken in high school and looking at the actual grades posted on the transcripts.
  • SAT Critical Reading + SAT Mathematics Average:  1343
  • SAT Writing Average:  637

A Great Evening of Entertainment

Scenes from the Variety Show

Last week, the seniors hosted a Variety Show featuring the talents of Westminster students and a parent too!  The evening was a success with seniors collecting over $400 for their mission trip to Haiti.

If you were unable to be there, you can tell from the photos below that the students had a great time displaying their talents on Thursday night.  Thanks to all the parents, students, and teachers that came out to support the show!

They’re Here!  Show your Westminster Pride
