Hello Upper School Families,
What an exciting time of year! This past Friday was the final bell for our seniors. Congratulations to all the seniors for their hard work and dedication! It was so fun seeing them in their college shirts and coming together to celebrate on the senior quad. The past few weeks we saw several exciting programs including the senior art show, band concert, high school musical, jazz concert, and the cabaret. All amazing performances. If you missed any of these, make sure to watch one at some point during your child’s time at Academy. You will be amazed at how talented these students are.
