Every spring, high school seniors across the country eagerly wait to hear back from colleges that they applied for earlier in the year. Traditionally, colleges send their admissions decisions throughout the month of March, and once accepted, applicants would usually have until May 1 to decide which college they will attend.

To celebrate college attendance and to help City schools emphasize the importance of obtaining a postsecondary education, the DOE has marked May 1 as New York’s official College Decision Day. This annual citywide event celebrates our high school seniors’ post-graduation plans, and it provides schools with a great opportunity to encourage younger students and families to start preparing for college as early as possible.

Throughout the day, schools across the City promoted and commemorated the day by using the tags, #CollegeAccessforAll, #CollegeDecisionDay, and #IDecided on Facebook and Twitter. Continue the conversation by using these hashtags, and check out the following video we made in honorĀ of our college-bound seniors:

Congratulations, City high school seniors! We wish you all tremendous success in your future endeavors!
