Brophy Prep hosted their Senior Farewell Dinner in April, as well as a school-wide graduation party after the ceremony on May 21. Food, entertainment abound - the Xavier seniors and were invited, too!

The St. Thomas Clap-Out is a long-running tradition of clapping out eighth-graders on their last day of school. Students’ first grade buddies also sang them a song. There was a Graduation Dance on one night, and at the conclusion of the graduation ceremony a video compilation of pictures from the past ten years the students have been at STA was shown – a highlight for everyone. 

Christ Lutheran School’s graduation included a special moment where each advisor had the opportunity to share a Bible verse with the graduating class and then read the names of their advisees before they received their diplomas.

St. Theresas younger students prayed over the graduates as they were honored at the end-of-the-year Awards Assembly. Accolades included St. Theresa Award winners, Student Council awards, presentation of NJHS honor cords, Art Awards and recognition of staff that have helped guide the students.

Veritas Prep’s Senior Celebration, A Night in Morocco, was celebrated in May at the Phoenix Zoo. Students took a Safari Cruiser ride to the Desert Tents to enjoy dessert, snacks and live entertainment to cap off their final year of high school.

On Saturday, May 14, 257 seniors from Xavier Prep graduated. Earlier in the week a Baccalaureate Mass was also held at the church for seniors and their parents.
