Our hard-working graduates attend some of the most prestigious universities and colleges in the country, with the majority of seniors being accepted to their first-choice school. The NCS Guidance office works diligently to help students develop high school plans suited to their post-graduate desires, with a focus on building well-rounded college resumes that stand out to admissions offices. Our Director of Academics, College and Career provides intensive college admissions preparation for rising juniors and seniors and guides them through each step of the process.

Ambassador undergraduates are currently at schools around the world, including Yale University; Cornell University; Istituto Marangoni, London (the London School of Fashion and Design); Universita di Napoli Federico II (University of Naples Federico II, Italy); University of California San Diego; University of Massachusetts, University of Kentucky; The Ohio State University, and numerous major Division 1 state and private schools across the United States.

The most popular choices of our graduating seniors remain Virginia’s state universities, with the largest number of graduates each year choosing to attend the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, James Madison University, Virginia Commonwealth University and the College of William and Mary.
