Renaissance School Graduates Largest Class in History
Renaissance School is a private high school for gifted and motivated students in the arts, sciences and humanities located in Charlottesville.
A Charlottesville college prep high school graduated its largest class in history Saturday morning.
The Renaissance School held a ceremony in Jackson Park to celebrate their 2013 class. The 15 graduates all chose to speak about their experiences at the school.
Renaissance's head of school says the group is tight-knit and very diverse.
"They're very diverse. There's 15 of them, which is the largest class we've had in our history. We are a small school and they're very, very diverse in their interests and also in what their plans are after high school," said Sara Johnson, the head of the Renaissance School.
Most of the students are heading to four-year colleges. This year's seniors have earned an average of more than $150,000 in scholarships and grants per student.
