Class of 2017 Receives Early Acceptance Notifications

Twelve students at Iona Prep received an early holiday gift—early acceptance to the schools of their choice. The young men utilized the early application process in order to get results one way or the other by the close of 2016. Some 24 percent of the senior class applied Early Decision, while more than 80 percent took advantage of Early Action programs.

“Iona Prep’s mission is to support the development of moral and ethical leaders who strive for spiritual, intellectual and physical excellence,” Director of School Counseling Gregory Quirolo ’90 said. “These young men are examples of a small group of the class of 2017 who will be taking their intellectual talents to some of the top colleges and universities in the country.”

"Wesleyan University was my top choice and knowing that I am accepted relieves that albatross around my neck associated with waiting for college acceptances,” said Morrison. “I am so wonderfully enthused to start a new chapter in my life at Wesleyan and will forever be grateful for the academic rigor and moral foundation I received at Iona Prep."

The rest of the senior class will receive results in early April to decide their next steps in education.
