Though the Brainerd High School class of 2002 has just graduated and many graduates are looking forward to a break from class and homework, 70 percent of 466 graduates surveyed said they will attend college.
Brainerd Superintendent Jerry Walseth shared a Class of 2002 senior survey with the Brainerd School Board Monday.
Thirty-seven percent of the graduates said they will attend a four-year college. Another 33 percent will attend a two-year college. Walseth reported that 11 students, or 2 percent, will attend a private technical or trade school.
The remaining students will either enter the military, seek employment, are undecided, will travel, will move or plan an internship.
Of those attending school, 106 students will attend Central Lakes College, 49 will attend other community and technical colleges in the state, 50 will attend a four-year college that is out-of-state, 34 will attend a private school, 38 will attend a state college, eight will attend a two-year college that is out-of-state and the rest are undecided.
In the Class of 2001 survey of 439 students, 39 percent said they planned to attend a four-year college, 37 percent planned to attended a two-year college and 5 percent planned to attend a private technical or trade school.
