Portrait of a prep Grad

Turning the tassel on your mortarboard at Commencement is more than a symbol at the Prep. For St. John’s graduates, this simple gesture is an exclamation point on an experience that leads to fresh perspectives and lasting discoveries.

You leave here with an open mind, an empathic heart, and a global outlook. You have served your neighbors, worked hard and risen to challenges. You have a good sense of who you are.

How did you reach this milestone? You spent your time here being present for others and drawing upon the inspiration of teachers who are invested in your success. You immersed yourself in a lively exchange of ideas and expansive resources. You worked as part of a team, capitalized on abundant support, and allowed yourself to take the risks that lead to genuine growth. You solved problems, developed habits of excellence, and learned how to learn. You know what it takes to be a leader and to stand up for others.

High expectations and a deep sense of social responsibility have brought out the best in you and your classmates—and you’ve been kind to one another all along the way. You have the confidence to take the next step in your journey. And the vision to see how to make a difference.
