Baccalaureate & Commencement

Baccalaureate & Commencement

Dear Parent/Guardian of the Class of 2017,

It is never too soon to start planning. For that reason, I share with you an overview of the celebratory activities for the Class of 2017, as well as your son’s obligations with respect to the completion of his final months at the Prep. This information, as well as occasional updates, will be posted on the Office of the President website under the header “Baccalaureate and Commencement” and communicated through school email.

Commencement Exercises this year at the Prep are very special as the Class of 2017 will celebrate with the Class of 1967 – the Prep’s fourth graduating class – on the occasion of their 50th anniversary.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, the Faculty, Professional Staff and Leadership Team, I sincerely thank you for entrusting your son’s education to St. Augustine Prep. Please be assured of my prayers for your son, you, and your family as we acknowledge and affirm the many gifts and accomplishments of the Class of 2017.

In Augustine,

Fr. Donald F. Reilly, O.S.A., D. Min.
