Trillium Academy held their first ever College Decision Day ceremony on May 19, 2017 to celebrate the future goals of the senior class. All 27 of Trillium’s graduating seniors have made the decision to attend college in the fall. We are so proud of our Class of 2017!
Trillium’s College Decision Day event began with a taco bar lunch, photo booth, and gratitude station for the seniors. Lunch and activities were followed by a wonderful ceremony attended by parents, community members, all of Trillium’s 9th -12th grade students, and even the Henry Ford College mascot, Hawkster!
During the ceremony, each student was called up to sign a certificate, shake hands with the representative from their chosen college, and pose for photos. All students received gifts from their colleges to show their pride for their new school in the fall. The ceremony was concluded with a raffle consisting of prizes donated by businesses in the community, including gift cards from Starbucks, salad for a year from Panera Bread, and two brand new laptop computers! The computers were paid for by three private donors and a grant funded by the College Football Playoff Association, Reach Higher, and Better Make Room.
The College Decision Day event supports Trillium Academy’s "College Bound" philosophy, and will show our K-12 students that by choosing to continue their education after high school, they can build a better future full of exciting possibilities!
