Celebrating the 58th Graduating Class of Christian Brothers Academy
May 22, 2020
The 58th graduating class of Christian Brothers Academy will truly be one for the history books.
The Class of 2020 will not only be remembered for their outstanding academic, athletic, service, and extracurricular achievements, but also their resilience, fortitude and unity to weather circumstances outside of their control.
In honor of the original commencement date of Thursday, May 21st, we are pleased to release the 2020 Baccalaureate Mass & Graduation Commemoration videos. These videos are meant to celebrate the accomplishments of these 203 young men until we can meet in-person to award each student his Christian Brothers Academy diploma.
The Class of 2020 will leave a tremendous legacy at the Academy, including the following statistics as they depart for the next chapter in their lives. You can see each individual college selection for the members of the Class of 2020 here, reported by the students as of May 15th.
The 203 graduates received over $22.175 million* in merit-based scholarships to colleges and universities across the country.
