The first half of 2020 is nothing like what anyone ever expected, especially for the Class of 2020. This extremely successful class of distinguished students has achieved so much in the face of adversity and has continued to persevere in their studies, even while doing so from home.
1.5% of all students enrolled in bachelor degree programs receive enough scholarships and grants to cover the full cost of college tuition. In contrast, 50% of this year’s graduating class at Logos Academy received full-tuition scholarships. Our 12 seniors have earned, on average, approximately $120,000 in scholarships per student over the course of their 4 year college career.
We will celebrate the Class of 2020 during a modified graduation ceremony in line with current guidelines at a later date in June. Congratulations Logos Academy Seniors! We are so proud of you and cannot wait to see where God takes you. Read more about each member of this year’s senior class below.
