Eton Academy's 2011 Senior Class Is 100% College Bound

BIRMINGHAM, MI--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - Each of the nine seniors in Eton Academy's 2011 graduating class has been accepted to a college or university for next fall. This is the third year in a row the senior class from the school for different learners has earned this accomplishment. 

Eton Academy, a nationally recognized school educating students in 1-12 grades with reading, attention and other learning challenges, has established a long-standing track record of sending approximately 80 percent of its graduates to college each year compared to 13 percent of similar students nationwide, according to the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD).

Eton Academy's 2011 senior class includes: Madison Bernstein, Christine Ellison, Drew LaNeve, Oksana Malec, Jake McGuire, Alyssa Minnix, John Oster, Amalia Pardales and Amanda Sattmann.

The colleges the seniors were accepted to include: Aquinas College, Beacon College, Calvin College, Columbia University, Eastern Michigan University, Grand Valley State University, Oakland Community College, Oakland University, Lynn University, Mitchell College, Rochester College, Southern Utah University, University of Arizona and Western Michigan University. The students are still receiving information from other schools and haven't made their final decisions yet.

"We are proud of the senior class and recognize their significant accomplishments," said Head of School, Pete Pullen. "It is rewarding to see our students on track to pursue their dreams. That is what our school is all about."

The Eton students have their sights set on their future careers which may include becoming a special education, preschool or government teacher; veterinarian; biologist; law enforcement officer; or set designer for television and theater.
