SDA 8th Graders Move Up

On Friday, June 8, the Academy’s 8th grade class officially “moved up” into high school.  The event started with a Mass held for the girls, their families and their teachers at the Chapel at St. Peter’s University.  The Mass was celebrated by the Reverend Father Rocco Danzi, SJ who told the girls “You are amazing. Be women for and with others.”  The official Moving Up Ceremony, presided over by Ms. MaryAnn McLean, Coordinator of the 7th and 8th grade, was held at the conclusion of Mass.  Students received Certificates of Completion and several students received awards, including the President’s Excellence Award, and scholarships.  

Lunch for everyone followed back at the Academy.
