Congratulations to the Class of 2021
Last week, Xceed Preparatory Academy held an in-person Graduation Ceremony for seniors from our South Florida locations. In his keynote speech during the ceremony, Dr. Brent Goldman, co-founder of XPA, noted that this year’s seniors earned a combined $2.5 million in scholarships and grants, an incredible achievement, particularly during a pandemic.
Congratulations to the following graduating seniors:
- Daphnie Blum
- Jonah Chalik
- Phoebe O’Mara
- Donny Romano
- Sophia Sailor
- Vinicio Vieira
- Corey Woods
- Anthony Caceres
- Pablo Murcia
- Francesca Aguirre
- Liam Phagan
- Isabella Reyes
- Zachary Steiger
In addition, we had two of our Pioneer students graduate. Both Isabella Reyes and Donny Romano received Pioneer Medallions on stage at the ceremony. We honored them as they have been with our school since the first year we opened.
We’d also like to recognize the academic achievements of Jonah, Phoebe, Donny, Francesca, Liam and Isabella who were named to the National Honor Society.
The father of Francesca, one our graduates and NHS members, shared how Xceed positively impacted their family.
“Xceed really did change Francesca’s life in every way, and for that, we are eternally grateful,” said Hugo Aguirre, graduate Francesca’s father. “The school she is going to next year (Westmont College) is mostly because of Xceed. Yes, tennis helped, but she would have never received a Presidential Scholarship if not for the education she received at Xceed, and for this, we will always be in debt to everyone there.”
Donny echoed Mr. Aguirre’s comments, sharing, “Xceed is a great way to help balance the adjustment into high school because it’s not overwhelming, it helps you become more social and you’re thoroughly prepared for college. Not only did we prep for important steps such as the SATs and college applications, but Xceed also helped me become more independent and organized.”
We wish all of our graduates nothing but the best in their future endeavors!
