Memories from Daycroft Alumni

“Daycroft prepared me, in every way, for the world beyond elementary school.”
– Zoe Chrissos, Daycroft Alumna, 2007

Zoe, who attended Daycroft through 5th grade, is now a junior at Greenhills School of Ann Arbor. She edits Greenhills’ literary magazine, is on Student Council, and performs in the spring musical, while exploring art, design, and photography. Zoe has also played field hockey, volleyball, and soccer at Greenhills. She looks ahead to a liberal arts education at an East Coast college – or perhaps even across the Atlantic. 

“We learned how to learn – and to love learning.”
–Marissa Thompson, Daycroft Alumna, 2005

When Marissa, who attended Daycroft through 5th grade, addressed the audience for Daycroft’s 2011-12 Annual Giving Campaign Breakfast, she was in the midst of her senior year at Greenhills School of Ann Arbor. And what an accomplished student she had proven to be: National Merit semi-finalist, 4.0 GPA, AP Scholar of Distinction. Marissa also played varsity basketball and field hockey at Greenhills, served on Student Council, and was a state forensics champion. After graduation, she plans to study chemical engineering at the University of Michigan or University of Pennsylvania. Of her Daycroft education, Marissa says: “I don’t think I could have had the experiences I had here anywhere else.”
