Northeastern is top destination for Boston public schools’ valedictorians—again
For the second year in a row, a record number of Boston public high school valedictorians have chosen to attend Northeastern University, with 13 students at the top of their class set to become Huskies in the fall.
The number includes 12 students of the Boston Public Schools and one student from a Boston public charter school.
The number of valedictorians from Boston Public Schools selecting Northeastern is four times as many as any other college in the Boston area, according to BPS.
Last year, 11 valedictorians from Boston public high schools matriculated at the university, tying a record from 2020.
“We are so lucky that a record-breaking number of Boston Public Schools valedictorians will remain in Boston this year as students at Northeastern University,” Boston Mayor Michelle Wu says. “We are grateful for all that these students do to inspire, mobilize, and enrich their communities, and are excited to see all that they accomplish as Huskies!”
