About our Alumni
What happens after Miquon?
Miquon students, who are not admitted based on standardized or intelligence testing, score well above average on standardized tests in their elementary years, and are sought after by the most competitive middle and upper schools. They are also well-prepared to meet the challenges of 7th grade in the larger setting of a neighborhood public school. The 6th grade teachers work with parents of graduating students to help them assess their child’s strengths, needs, and style, so that a successful and smooth transition to a suitable middle school will be made.
About 80% of Miquon’s graduates attend other independent schools in 7th grade, entering one of the local K-8 or K-12 schools. Some of these students transition to public school in 9th grade. Other graduates move into their neighborhood public middle schools or into one of Philadelphia’s magnet or charter programs.
Recent graduates of Miquon from the classes have gone on to attend wonderful middle schools, high schools, colleges, and universities. Check out our Recent Graduates page to view the list.
