About 90 percent of the young women who graduated last week from the Samuel H. Wang Yeshiva University High School for Girls — aka “Central” — in Holliswood, Queens, are headed to Israel for a year of de rigueur, pre-college study in an advanced Jewish learning seminary.

One graduate made it clear what’s, literally, on her mind.

Renee Wietschner, of Woodmere, L.I., designed and wore a unique “Next stop: Home” cap, left,  at the graduation ceremonies that took place at YU’s main campus in Washington Heights. At the podium is C.B. Neugroschl, head of school at Central.

Wietschner will attend the Tiferet Center for Advanced Torah Studies for Women, in Ramat Bet Shemesh.

Dr. Paul Brody of Great Neck, whose daughter Limor also graduated last week and will go to the same Bet Shemesh school as Wietschner, captured the image.

Limor, holding a bouquet, above,  is the last of four Brody daughters — aka the “Brody Bunch” — to attend Central.

Wietschner’s cap was a hit at the Central graduation. It “received a lot of positive attention,” Dr. Brody says.
