Check out the higher education destinations of the Peabody Class of 2009.
Peabody School’s mission does not end once our students graduate from 8th 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.
Approximately 92% of our graduates transition into area public high schools. Most of our students complete 8th grade with high school credits in math, science, and foreign language, giving them exceptional flexibility in their freshman year. In addition, our students are regularly placed in AP or Honors courses in their freshman year. 100% of Peabody students who applied to MESA—the Math, Engineering, and Science Academy at Albemarle High School—were accepted.
In terms of extra-curricular activities, Peabody students go on to participate in—and captain or co-captain—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, founders and leaders of diverse high school clubs, 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, and have received both academic and athletic financial aid awards from top colleges and universities.
