A Groton Embrace for Newly Admitted Students
Groton School is looking forward to welcoming its new students for 2020–21!  Of 1,259 applicants, 11 percent were accepted. Ninety-one new students will join the Circle from the U.S. and all over the world—from Maine to Mexico, from Bulgaria to Egypt. Forty-six percent will receive financial aid.

Travel restrictions and safety concerns forced Groton to cancel receptions and Revisit Days. Helping admitted students make decisions were student "virtual Revisit hosts," @GrotonAdmission on Instagram, and a Choose Groton web page. 

"The whole Groton family—students, faculty, parents, alumni, and trustees—stepped up to help us enroll a very impressive group of applicants," said Dean of Admission Ian Gracey.
