 After 15 days of spring practices and workouts, our Varsity Football Lions defeated Somerset Academy of Pembroke Pines on Friday, May 18, at the west campus Athletic Complex.

Commencement (kəˈmensmənt) – a beginning or start Next week, seventy-seven seniors will walk across the stage in the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church sanctuary.

Today, the Lower School's greatest show-and-tell took place because students, parents, and a panel of judges gathered in Fellowship Hall for the inaugural event, "The Lion's Den Maker Faire."

Congratulations to: Ethan Joseph, Albie Karaj, Liam Pace, and...

The Varsity Athletic Awards took place on Monday, May 14, in the Kennedy Fellowship Hall.
