Following a summer that saw the interior of the 75-year-old Hogan Hall radically transformed in just 13 weeks, and a successful start to the school year in its all-new classrooms, the building was re-dedicated during a ceremony Thursday evening.
The National Merit Scholarship Corporation has named 34,000 high-scoring students who took the PSAT in fall 2016 as Commended Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Competition. Among them are eight members of Prep's Class of 2018.
At the year-level opening convocations earlier this month, students were recognized for outstanding academic performance in specific subject areas during the 2016-17 school year. Gold and silver medals were presented for each year level in each academic department. Congratulations to all our medal recipients!
As the Prep community gathered together for the Mass of the Holy Spirit, each class of returning students also gathered on its own for an honors convocation – juniors and seniors before Mass, and sophomores after. As a new year's journey began, it was a time to celebrate the achievements of the previous year and look ahead to the possibilities of the next.
For the first time since last spring – and for the first time including the Class of 2021 – Prep's full student body returned to campus Thursday morning to share in a tradition as old as Jesuit education itself: the Mass of the Holy Spirit.
