The following is a chart of the colleges and universities where 2021 graduates from six 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 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—and this school year, the coronavirus pandemic might have affected students reporting details to their high school. Richard Montgomery and Churchill provided only data from schools that had at least four 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 six applicants from the combined high schools.
