"Thirteen hundred and seventy five days. From our first day of freshman orientation to today, that’s how long we have been Prep students," explained student speaker Michael Dillane, '16, during Prep's 138th commencement on Saturday. In the intervening days, the members of the Class of 2016 have broadened the horizons of their worldview, deepened their knowledge as well as their faith, and forged friendships that will last a lifetime. By all accounts, for this newest class of Prep alumni, those days have been time well spent.
In the midst of celebrating the collective accomplishments of the Class of 2016, Saturday's ceremony also provided an opportunity to acknowledge the individual achievements of various members of the graduating class. Here is an overview of the student awards presented in recognition of those achievements.

More than a week after completing their last exams, the Class of 2016 returned to Grand & Warren one last time on Thursday, for the annual Senior Exit Day. With a view toward Friday's Baccalaureate Mass and Saturday's commencement ceremony, the seniors reflected on four years at Prep, heard about what's next from some young alumni, collected their yearbooks, and prepared for their big moment this weekend. At day's end, a senior barbecue in the courtyard capped off the festivities.
