At YES Prep, Senior Signing Day has been an annual tradition where our seniors declare what is next in their journey by sharing what college, university, Armed Forces branch or post-secondary opportunity they will be pursuing after they graduate. Seniors have watched this tradition every year and have earned their moment in the spotlight!
 
We are thrilled to announce that YES Prep's Senior Signing Day will be on May 23, 2021, at Rice University, in their outdoor stadium!
 
Due to the pandemic and our unwavering commitment to the health and safety of our students, staff and families, this will be an exclusive event for seniors and two of their family members only.
 
The event will be livestreamed for the rest of the YES Prep community to watch safely from home.

History of Senior Signing Day

Senior Signing Day is YES Prep's take on a ceremony that traditionally is reserved for star athletes playing big-time Division 1 sports.

While those are impressive accomplishments, we believe our YES Prep seniors deserve the same, if not more, attention because each one of them represents what we set out to prove when we first founded YES Prep back in 1998: Any student -regardless of zip code, ethnicity, or income level- can graduate from high school and attend and complete a four-year college, when they are given access to the same opportunities and the same resources that students receive in great private schools and in great suburban public schools.
