Lyme-Old Lyme HS Receives ‘College Success Award,’ Only 1,722 Schools Recognized Nationally

Lyme-Old Lyme High School has received the College Success Award from GreatSchools.org.

Lyme-Old Lyme High School has received the College Success Award, which honors schools that excel in ensuring students prepare for college, enroll in college and succeed once they get there.

Launched by GreatSchools.org, the 2019 College Success Award recognizes only 1,722 schools in 25 states. Award-winning schools have a successful track record of graduating students who later enroll in two- or four-year college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist on to their second year, according to available data from each state.

College- and career-ready graduates are critical to fueling the U.S. economy, as 65 percent of jobs will require a post-secondary degree by 2020. Lyme-Old Lyme High School is one of the approximately 20 percent of eligible schools that won the College Success Award.

In response to this recognition, Superintendent Ian Neviaser stated, “This honor is a testament to the commitment of our students and their families, our dedicated staff, and the communities that continue to support our mission. We are honored to be recognized as a part of such an elite group.”

“Lyme-Old Lyme High School is providing their students with a high-quality education that equips and empowers them with the skills to forge a path to bright futures,” said Jon Deane, CEO of GreatSchools.org. “We applaud students, parents, teachers and the entire community for their dedication to pursuing college success.”
