College Acceptance Rates Continue to Increase!

Trends in the School District’s College Acceptance Rates

In short, the trends are showing a higher percentage of graduating seniors have been accepted to college, compared to the five years prior to 2016.


For the past three years, Madison High School has pursued an initiative to have all high school seniors apply to at least one four year and one two year school (community college). This has allowed our college acceptance rate, when including community college, to be 100% for the classes of 2016, 2017 and 2018.


The Senior Class was awarded $1,051,796 in funds awarded for post-secondary higher learning.

Those include:

● Wolverine Opportunity Scholarship, HAIL (High-Achieving Involved Leader) Scholarship, and Kochoff Pathway to Success Scholarship from the University of Michigan

● Spartan Advantage Grant from Michigan State University

● Wayne State Scholar Award & the Gold Merit Scholarship

● Blue and White Lawrence Technical Institute Scholarship

● Oakland University Golden Grizzly Grant, the Talented Scholar Award, & the Urban and Rural Valedictorian Scholarship

● Lakeland University Dean’s Scholarship & the Service and Leadership Scholarship

● University of Detroit Mercy Dean’s Scholarship


As a class, the graduates of 2018 were accepted to a total of 32 four-year universities, including University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University, Oakland University, & University of Detroit Mercy and a total of 19 two-year colleges/trades/technical/vocational schools, including Oakland Community College, Henry Ford Community College, MAMC, the Art Institute of Michigan and Michigan College of Beauty.
