Congratulations Class of 2015!
During a special dinner on “Deposit Day” in early May, VVS seniors announced their college matriculation choices to the school. Each member of the class of 36 seniors marked a spot on a map of the US – with one student choosing to attend a university outside of the US – with their name and college choice during the dinner. Once again we’re looking at a 100% rate of matriculation to four-year universities.
Each member of the Class of 2015 was accepted into multiple undergraduate institutions and all will matriculate in the fall, with the exception of two students choosing a gap year followed by entry in the fall of 2016. The VVS Class of 2015 matriculation list includes
Dartmouth College (2 students attending) School of the Art Institute of Chicago

It was also a very successful year for merit scholarships with approximately 90% of the class offered tuition assistance based on merit. A little over $1.3 million dollars was awarded per year to members of the class. Spanning four years of college, the class in total was awarded in excess of $5 million in scholarships.
Students were also accepted to, but opted not to attend schools including Bates College, Fordham University, Middlebury College, Wesleyan University, Occidental College, Rhode Island School of Design, Lewis and Clark College, Sarah Lawrence College, Skidmore College, Hofstra University and Lehigh University.
