Congratulations to the 2024 graduates of Bishop Seabury Academy. For the last 27 years, this Lawrence independent school has offered a college preparatory education for grades 6-12 in a diverse and enthusiastic learning community, promoting academic excellence and moral development while empowering students to explore their potential and to become engaged citizens of the world. Seabury shapes confident and resilient students so they can make their own unique mark on this world. Tuition assistance is available. 

Seabury’s graduates can be found all across the United States and around the world. As an alumni parent of two recent graduates said, “It has been inspiring to watch them grow over time into strong and capable young people who flourish in very different real-world and educational settings. Seabury prepares their students to succeed and thrive, both academically and in life, no matter what direction their hearts take them.” 

The 27 members of the Class of 2024 have been accepted to 84 different colleges and were offered more than $8.3 million in four-year renewable scholarships and institutional grants. These high-achieving students have received acceptances which include Barnard College, Grinnell College, Howard University, the KU Honors Program, Pratt Institute, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Smith College, Washington University in St. Louis and many others. 

Don Schawang, Head of School, says of the Class of 2024, “The level of engagement from these graduates in the classroom, the culture of our school, and the larger community of Lawrence and Kansas has been impressive. They are a talented, sophisticated group of students who demonstrate strong character and will make a tremendous positive impact on the world. Congratulations to all of them!”
