Congratulations to the Class of 2022

At Collegiate School, commencement is a special time for our community to celebrate our graduates' incredible achievements. On Friday, May 27, we celebrated the Class of 2022 as they processed through Alice Tully Hall for the school's morning commencement ceremony. This year's commencement speaker was Janno Lieber '79, CEO of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The senior speaker, voted by his classmates, was Zander K. '22, and the valedictory speaker was Tyler G. '22. On the piano, Diego B. '22 played Chopin's Polonaise in A Flat Major. Collegiate is honored to celebrate the accomplishments of the 49 graduates in the Class of 2022 and welcomes them into the Collegiate Alumni Association.

Arts Day is a Great Success

After two years of being online only, Arts Day returned to being in person at 301 Freedom Place South! K-12 student artwork was displayed throughout the building, and music and drama performances took place in the black box, the auditorium, and on the fourth floor. Performances included a senior project play, The Real Inspector Hound; 10-minute plays written by eighth graders; the seventh grade play, The King Stag; fifth and sixth grade string ensemble; seventh and eighth grade chamber music and percussion groups; Middle and Upper School Choruses; and Advanced Orchestra with special guest tango artists, Los Chantas (which was supported by the Heather Reid Schaffzin Fund).

The Red Doors Return

On March 28, as students, faculty, and staff returned from spring break, a wonderful transformation greeted them: the front doors at 301 Freedom Place South had been painted red, the same color as the iconic doors at Collegiate’s historic building on West 77th Street (as well as the West End Avenue gates and the West 78th Street entrance). Painting the doors was an initiative of the Class of 2022 with the support of student government, led by student government president Matthew Kuster ’22, who also encouraged students, faculty, and staff to wear red to celebrate. Thanks to them, Collegiate can once more welcome everyone at the Red Doors!
