The Class of 2013 from Jefferson Academy will have bragging rights as the first to graduate from the new school location.
The school moved into its new state-of-the-art facility in February.
“It was very challenging to move, but the students got through it with great character,” said Assistant Principal Michael Wilson.
The building is different, but the school’s mission statement is the same, emphasizing college preparation and character development.
“We take great pride in achieving that,” Wilson said.
“We are a John Erwin School of Excellence for 2010, 2011, and 2012. I wouldn’t be surprised if we won it again (for 2012/2013).”
This year’s seniors were ambitious and productive, earning a large haul of scholarship awards, Wilson said. The big event was a junior and senior trip to Europe to visit London, Paris, Florence, and Rome.
