The following is a chart of the colleges and universities where 2020 graduates from seven Bethesda-area high schools applied and were accepted, based on data provided by the schools. The schools are: Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Walt Whitman and Walter Johnson in Bethesda; Richard Montgomery and Thomas S. Wootton in Rockville; Winston Churchill in Potomac; and Montgomery Blair in Silver Spring.

The acceptance information that the schools sent is self-reported by students, so school officials could not guarantee its accuracy. Wootton and Churchill provided only data from schools that had at least three applicants, so we have designated some of their numbers as not applicable (N/A). For brevity’s sake, we have limited the list to colleges and universities with at least seven applicants from the combined high schools.
