Celebrating an amazing 35th school year!

Graduation

We completed another successful year at Anacapa School, celebrating 35 years of providing an exceptional education.  Our students and their families were an impressive bunch, and we are so thankful for their support throughout the school year.  We would like to congratulate our Class of 2017, of which includes students who will go on to attend Loyola Marymount University, University of California, Berkeley, Reed College, Binghamton University, Santa Barbara City College, and Regent’s University London.  The historic Casa de la Guerra was the site of this year’s Commencement and All-School Awards Ceremony on Friday, June 16.  We had a great time celebrating our seniors in such a beautiful and historic location!  While the spotlight was on the graduating Class of 2017, we also included awards and Honor Roll recognition for all grade levels and some very special Anacapa School traditions.

8th Grade Promotion

We also had friends and family join us on June 9 to celebrate our 8th grade class promotion on campus.  We had a great time listening to the students’ speeches about their experiences in Lower School and what they were looking forward to in high school.  Two of our 8th grade students, Maneya Hunsucker and Adamariz Rios, won the Lower School Achievement Award.  Congrats, Maneya and Ada!
