Class of 2019
A Message from The Director of Admissions:
As we wrap up another academic year and look forward to some rest and relaxation in the summer months, it is always a good opportunity to reflect on the many accomplishments of our students and faculty.
We are very proud of the seventy members of our senior Class of 2019, who graduated on Sunday, May 26th at Linsly's 205th Commencement Ceremony. These graduates will go on to attend 48 different colleges and universities in 18 different states as well as in Canada, Germany and Spain. They were awarded scholarships to the college or university where they will matriculate this fall and also received many outside scholarships from various community organizations, companies and foundations and have received special recognition for their performance on the AP exams. Read more about our 2019 graduates here.

In addition to the academic accomplishments of our graduates, we are also proud of the many athletic acknowledgments and awards that our Linsly athletes and teams have received this year. Recently, at the OVAC (Ohio Valley Athletic Conference) Banquet of Champions, Linsly was the recipient of numerous awards and recognition including the OVAC Student-Athlete Achievement Award as well as the Overall OVAC Cup Champion for Class AAA. Our student-athletes celebrated a successful season taking home OVAC Championships in Boys' Track, Girls' Track, Baseball, Girls' Tennis, Cheering, Girls' Cross Country, and Boys' Soccer. Read more about our athletic achievements this year here.

The end of the school year also brings a celebration of the Arts at Linsly with the annual Spring Concert and Art Show which showcases the musical and artistic talents of our entire student body. 

Finally, we ended the year with a celebration of the retirement of three faculty members whose careers at Linsly have spanned more than three decades. Congratulations to Mr. Terry Depew, Assistant Headmaster, Coach and Administrator who served Linsly for 40 years, his wife, Mrs. Cathy Depew, Administrative Assistant who served Linsly for 39 years, and Chair of the World Language Department, Dr. Nicoletta Villa Sella, who has taught at Linsly for 31 years on your retirements! Read more about their careers here.

At the beginning of the school year, Linsly Headmaster, Justin Zimmerman, announced the new school theme for the year, “Do What is Right. Not What is Easy.” With all of these accomplishments, it is evident that our students and faculty did in fact "Do what is right...Not what is easy.:
The Admissions Office hosted "New Student Day" in early May for all of our newly enrolled families. During this event, newly enrolled families received important information for the start of the school year and what to expect during the summer months. If you are a newly enrolled Linsly family, visit our 2019/2020 back to school page for the most up to date information on the start of school for next fall.
As we prepare for all that summer brings to campus, including the excitement of Linsly's 2019 Summer Day Camp and enrichment coursework in our Summer Programs, the Admissions Office will continue to work with new families to make their transition to Linsly as seamless as possible. If you are still interested in learning more about Linsly for the fall, please contact our Admissions Office to make an appointment over the summer to visit our campus. We look forward to meeting more students and families who are interested in learning more about the many opportunities that Linsly has to offer. With small class sizes, individual attention, college counseling, and excellent academic, fine arts and athletic program, Linsly can help your child unlock his or her potential.
