Middleburg residents Chessa Benevento, Emma Northrup, Hays Turner, and Rose Uran, along with Jacky Arellano-Alvarez of Marshall, Betsy Altenburger, Elsie Rose of Purcellville, Ellen Burke and Hayden Eskew of Upperville, and Chanler Jewett of The Plains, were among the 43 students from four countries, 11 states, and the District of Columbia to graduate from Foxcroft School on May 28, 2021.

These students are an impressive class, including one National Merit Commended student, 14 AP Scholars, nine members of the Cum Laude Society, and ten students who completed the requirements to earn an academic concentration designation on their diploma. Collectively, the class of 2021 received 218 offers of admission from 137 colleges and universities — including Bucknell University, Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University, Gettysburg College, Mount Holyoke College, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, New York University, Savannah College of Art and Design, Spelman College, University of California at Los Angeles, University of Michigan, University of Virginia, and Williams College, among others — and were offered more than $3.1 million in merit scholarships. The class also stood out athletically with Division III recruits in lacrosse and field hockey and four exceptional proficiency participants for riding.

Congratulations to the Foxcroft Class of 2021! ML
