At Sion, we maintain a tradition of 100% college acceptance. The Class of 2017 sent 102 young women to 54 different universities across the United States and abroad. We also celebrated our 49th consecutive year of receiving National Merit recognition. Graduates of the Class of 2017 received 324 merit-based scholarships with an impressive four-year total of almost $13 million dollars with 83% of the class having earned at least one of these scholarships. Many of our students will go on to be scholar athletes, participating in sports at schools across the county.
