GGUSD Celebrates College-Bound Seniors
- Friday, April 28, 2023
Garden Grove Unified School District’s eight high schools are celebrating hundreds of college-bound seniors with festive College Signing Day events, complete with music, cake, student performances, and photo stations. At each College Signing Day event, students are photographed proudly holding signs displaying which college they plan to attend.
College Signing Day events are an annual tradition in GGUSD, celebrated in late April and early May in alignment with the May 1 California State and University of California college commitment deadlines.
“Our College Signing Days are important because they show students how proud we are of their accomplishments and that they are finishing high school ready for college and on the path to lifelong success,” said Board of Education Walter Muneton. “We want seniors to feel pride in their success and excitement for the future.”
The district will feature the College Signing Days photos on its website at https://ggusd.us/CollegeSigning and on its Facebook and Instagram pages using #GGUSDCollegeSigning #Goal3 #LifelongSuccess.
GGUSD is consistently a leader in college readiness with nearly 59.4% of GGUSD’s Class of 2022 meeting rigorous college entrance requirements qualifying students to attend UC or CSU schools, compared to 57.2% across Orange County and 51.4% at the state level.
For the fifth consecutive year, all seven of GGUSD’s comprehensive high schools were named to U.S. News and World Report’s elite rankings of America’s Best High Schools.
