​The Shanghai Community International School graduating class of 2020 is set to attend some of the world’s leading undergraduate programs this year! Graduates are now preparing to head off to university, as acceptance letters have come in from 12 countries around the world. ​Our latest alumni have been accepted to more than 100 high-level educational institutions in Asia, the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and other countries across Europe.

SCIS Hongqiao Class of 2020

“Here at SCIS Hongqiao, this year’s graduating class has been one of the most inclusive, outgoing, considerate, and warmest groups of young people I have ever worked with, and those personal qualities are matched by their academic successes. It saddens me that their senior year was lacking many experiences they should have had, but the determination they showed in the face of their situation assures me they have already learned a very important lesson — that life is what you make it. The teachers and staff here wish them all the best as they leave for new learning and adventures around the world.” – Joshua Beard, College Counselor at SCIS Hongqiao.

SCIS Pudong Class of 2020

“The SCIS Pudong class of 2020 is resilient, strong, and determined not to allow obstacles to stand in the way of their dreams and passions. They are scientists, artists, athletes, engineers, scholars, innovators, future physicians, and diplomats. They head out into all corners of the globe with a determination to not only help rebuild society after the global pandemic but to create a more just world. Their perspectives and worldview have been shaped by the guidance, love, and support they have received during their time with us, and our community is forever transformed by their energy, passion, and optimism.” – Maja Kelly, College Counselor at SCIS Pudong.

​This is a bittersweet moment as the sadness of leaving friends and family behind combines with the excitement for what’s to come. But graduates can leave knowing that no matter where they end up around the world, the exceptionally strong bonds that they have developed over the years at SCIS will transcend any borders. ​Join us in wishing the best of luck to the class of 2020 as they embark on the next exciting chapter of their lives.
