Congratulations to the Top 10 of 2022

At our annual Academic Signing celebration on Tuesday, May 3, we recognized the Class of 2022 Top 10. These 10 students have achieved the highest weighted cumulative grade point average up to and including the third quarter of their senior year: Jack Caccavari, Emma Clemons, Andrew Collette, Bobby Fechtel, Emily Fridley, Zach Geiser, Maria Klug, Ethan Koran, Arden Jakubovic, and Jason Munzel.

As they move on to their collegiate careers, these Rockets will be challenging themselves in fields like neuroscience, aerospace engineering, information technology, political science, sports management, stage management, and environmental engineering.

“We are very proud of these students and the hard work they have put into their academic careers at McNicholas,” Director of Curriculum Dan Rosenbaum said. “We are equally proud of the ways they have exceled outside of the classroom in athletics, theatre, band, service, and many other areas of life. These students push themselves and others around them to excel and, in doing so, help drive the academic success of our school."
