We had a great Back to School Weekend to kick off the 2019-2020 school year! Thank you to all the families who were able to celebrate with us! The weekend was packed with events for all to enjoy, starting with the Tailgate BBQ and Friday Night Football where the Warriors defeated Excelsior Academy, 21-2. In case you missed the game, you can watch the live stream here 

The weekend continued on Saturday with Morning Colors, Classroom Orientations where parents met each of their Cadet’s teachers, and the Commissioning and New Cadet Recognition Ceremony where the Plebes took the Cadet Oath and the Seniors were commissioned as First Classmen. This ceremony was very special for all our Plebe and Senior families to witness. The evening ended with amazing food, music, dancing, and a beautiful sunset at the Beach Bash, sponsored by our wonderful ANAPA.

The weekend culminated on Sunday with a delicious pancake breakfast, the ANAPA meeting, and the Military Review and Sword Ceremony where the Seniors were presented their swords. Catch the live stream here if you missed it!
