Congrats, Class of 2019!

On Friday June 14, our TMA seniors marched across the stage at the Cramton Auditorium on Howard University Campus and received their high school diplomas. There were happy tears, shouts of joy, and lots of hugs exchanged during the 2019 TMA Commencement.

Our graduates were accepted into more than eighty-five colleges, many receiving scholarship funds. Anthony James (Class of 2019, Salutatorian) is TMA’s first QuestBridge Scholarship Winner, he was awarded a full ride to University of Chicago. Jayla Holdip was awarded a POSSE Scholarship, giving her 4-year tuition and fees to University of Rochester. This years Valedictorian, India McNeil spoke and reflected on her high school years and shared her aspirations as she heads to Bates College this fall with various scholarships awarded as well.

With TMA’s law- themed, college prep curriculum, we strive to prepare our students for college and to be active and engaged citizens. Throughout their high school years, they completed four years of portfolios, partnered with Law firms, took college tours, endured countless intense course loads, did legal skills work, enrichment activities, AP classes, 100+ hours of community service, participated in sports, clubs and groups, and heard from incredible speakers both inside and outside the classroom.

We are so thrilled to see what is next for our TMA Warriors. They will attend schools across the U.S. such as University of San Francisco, Howard University, University of Connecticut, The Ohio State University, George Washington University, Penn State, Michigan State, Temple University, US Coast Guard, to name a few.

Congratulations to the Class of 2019 for all of your hard work. On behalf of the teachers, staff, and community partners… we are so proud of you and cannot wait to hear of all the incredible things you do in college and beyond!

Class of 2019 earn the first round of college acceptances

All the hard work and college activities our seniors and College Counseling Team engaged in throughout the year paid off during college decision day. On November 28th, it was amazing to see students eagerly lined up to speak with college representatives and learn of their acceptance. We had over 90% of our students admitted to at least one college!

This year, we had Admission Counselors from Radford University, York College of Pennsylvania, Hampton University, The University of the District of Columbia, Virginia State University and more.

Some colleges and universities return every year to accept our students. Skye Heasley, Admissions Counselor at Radford University, said she returns every year to speak with our students because she enjoys “seeing them excited about college and being able to admit them in person.”

As always, we are proud of our students for their commitment towards their college goals, and we will continue to push them forward.
