Ginn Academy Class of 2015

On Sunday, May 24th, 2015, Ginn Academy graduated its sixth class of young scholars. This year 55 of our 52 seniors graduated, with a rate of 94%. Thirty-three are now at a four year college, 13 are at junior/community colleges, five have entered the workforce/trade school, and three are in the military. As always, we are very, very proud of our students.

We'd like to share some photos from graduation (and rehearsal) and from our traditional end of year dinner which we call Dining In. At Dining In, we celebrate the boys' accomplishments with their families and each student stands on stage and talks for a short time about what he's learned in his four years of high school.

At the end of this post, you'll find a list of all of our graduates along with their next destination.
