Astounding Application Acceptances: Benedictine seniors grinding out next-level steps

Since the beginning of the school year, BCP seniors have been on-track with their college admissions with a handful of students fully being accepted/committed to a college.

Many of these Cadets had completed their applications during the early decision and early action process in November. This allowed for those who applied early to hear back their results in December.

"Applying early action gave me great benefits, because I was able to hear back early from my colleges," said senior Tyler Craig. "One of the colleges I got accepted into was Elon University, which is a school in North Carolina, that piqued my interest."

Students who applied early decision form a binding contract with the college they applied to. This contract allows for those who have picked out a college to be their top choice, to fully commit to that school once they hear their results back. Numerous BCP seniors were able to be accepted early through this process. Parker Tootle, Bryan Smith, Aidan Kash and Gage Gunderson are some in the senior class that have been accepted into Virginia Tech. Ben Salp had been accepted into the Virginia Military Institute. "I enjoy the military structure and emphasis on camaraderie at VMI," said Salp. "The focus at VMI sets me up perfectly for my future endeavors in the Marines."

There are many more Cadets in the senior class as well who have been accepted into a college based on their outstanding athleticism in a sport. Football athletes who have committed are Dylan Faniel, committed to West Point; Leon Haughton, committed to Maryland; and Gary Seigler, committed to Delaware. Baseball athletes who have committed are Sam Saunders, committed to Virginia Wesleyan; Corey Adams, committed to William & Mary; Derrell Fletcher, committed to VMI; Wil Moore, committed to VMI; and Dalton Rocke, committed to Eastern Mennonite. These Cadets have earned their spot to continue playing a sport and further their education at their committed college.
