Blyth-Templeton Academy Graduates 2017

Today, Blyth-Templeton Academy congratulated the Class of 2017 on the completion of their high school journey and their exciting plans for the future. Students and their families along with faculty and board members formally celebrated graduation on Friday, June 9th with a ceremony at the Hill Center on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

“The college arms race is a priority for so many, but not for us,” said Head of School Lee Palmer. “We intentionally encourage our students to pursue their passions and find the right fit rather than seek the prestige of a name. Even so, the class of 2017 has a remarkable list of acceptances. We wish them all the best as they head off to their next endeavors and are grateful for their contributions to our community over the past two years.”

Here is a list of the Class of 2017 acceptances to colleges, universities, and other post-secondary programs:
