All seniors have until May 1, 2019, to decide where they want to go to college.

Since the end of senior year is nearing, many seniors are starting to commit to colleges. There are about two months left for seniors to decide where they want to go, so they still have time. Seniors Emily Abdoney, Alexis Ortega, and Caitlin Neal have signed to their college for their sport, while some have committed by doing early decision or regular decision.

Some students are planning to be roomates with their close friends at Academy, like Megan DeVaney and Olivia Fernandez.

“I’m most excited for getting to decorate our room and doing fun things we’ve wanted to do in high school, but haven’t gotten the chance to do. The transition will definitely be much easier because now I’ll have my best friend with me,” says DeVaney.

Here are the colleges students have enrolled in:

Alexis Ortega (‘19) has known since November that she will be on the gymnastics team at North Carolina State University.

“It was nice that I have known for a long time, because I have been able to meet people, and that is one of the things I am most excited about. I am excited about meeting new people, having new experiences, and being independent. I’m super excited [to be on the gymnastics team] because it’s different than the gymnastics I do now because it’s more of a team thing. I’m excited to be a part of a sport that is way beyond just myself,” says Ortega.
