Check out the higher education destinations of the Peabody Class of 2008.
Peabody School’s mission is not over once our students graduate from eighth grade. Their experiences here give them the tools they need to excel in their high school and college studies. Our students are more than prepared for the level of critical thinking and thoughtful decision-making necessary to make good choices about their own futures.
While about 92% of our graduates transition into area public high schools, here are some of the other high schools our graduates have attended:
St. Anne’s-Belfield School
St. Andrews School
Tandem Friends School
The majority of students complete the 8th grade with high school credits in math, science and foreign language. Our students are regularly placed in AP or Honors courses in their freshman year. 100% of Peabody students who apply have been accepted to MESA, the Math, Engineering & Science Academy at Albemarle High School.
In terms of extra-curricular activities, Peabody students go on to participate in, and co-captain teams of Varsity Basketball, Field Hockey, Football, Lacrosse, Soccer, Swimming, Tennis, Track and Wrestling.
Peabody graduates are active members in the acclaimed CHS Orchestra at the Royal Academy of Music as well as various other performing and visual arts programs throughout the state. They serve as mentors to incoming students, representatives on Student Council, members of political action committees, participants in local and international service projects, and many other organizations.
Peabody graduates have become Fulbright Scholars, Jefferson Scholars, Echols Scholars, Governor’s School participants, National Merit Scholars, valedictorians, as well as academic and athletic financial aid recipients at top colleges and universities.
