"Every year, on the second Friday in December, high school seniors from across the country march their college applications out the front doors of their schools and to their local post office or mail truck. The College March is a powerful symbol of the idea that every student, regardless of background or circumstance, can be prepared to thrive at a high-quality institution of higher learning. The College March is a powerful ritual that helps establish college-going cultures in our schools, reminding every student that with perseverance, resilience and hard work, each of them can earn a degree - and that we will challenge and support them all in doing just that." - NYC Outward Bound Schools
River's Edge Academy joined in the march this year to celebrate the senior class of 2016 taking the next step. Students, staff, community and family members joined the students as they marched to Harriet Island in St.Paul to hand over their college applications to be sent off. Congratulations seniors!
