End-of-Year Car Parade
Community celebrations were certainly interrupted by the current health crisis. However, with a little creativity and lots of cheers, our families, students, faculty, and staff were able to celebrate together at our family car parade on campus. Check out our photo gallery to see all of the smiling faces, and impressively decorated cars, from throughout the afternoon!
Congratulations, Class of 2020!
Joined by families, faculty, friends, and of course, the Class of 2020, we celebrated our newest group of alumni with a virtual graduation ceremony on Friday, June 12! The program included remarks from Head of School Brendan Largay, Middle School Head Liz Gray, as well as three outstanding student speeches, before the graduates received their diplomas. We encourage you to visit our Class of 2020 website and enjoy photos, video tributes, and more. You will also find recordings of the full virtual ceremony, as well as individual elements of the celebration (student speeches, musical performances, etc.). Congratulations again, Class of 2020!

Steve Wilson '01
KINGS is a powerful short film that follows rookie African American police officer Brandon Billips (played by Steve Wilson '01) on his first night upon being sworn into the Oakland Police Department. Before long, he's faced with difficult choices as his veteran partner starts to abuse the power of his badge, putting his life, and the lives of others, in danger. The film was released in 2019, but has gained attention recently due to its topical, compelling theme.
Note: this film includes graphic language.
Charles Pinck '76
Charles Pinck '76, President of the OSS Society, recently produced a short film about D-Day, titled “Operation Overlord: OSS and the Battle for France.” The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was a wartime intelligence agency of the United States during World War II, and a predecessor to the CIA. The film tells the story of allied special forces whose daring exploits changed the course of World War II. The film won a pair of awards—Best Mini Movie Historical Documentary, and Best Filmmaker Mini Movie—at the 2019 Palm Beach International Film Festival.
