Prize Day Week - June 1-6

Two Prize Day Events
We have decided to hold two separate Prize Day events this year. At the first event, on the evening of Thursday, June 4, all of the prizes that are traditionally presented during the Prize Day ceremony—including departmental prizes, athletics prizes, character prizes, and faculty and staff prizes—will be awarded. The second Prize Day ceremony, on Saturday, June 6, will celebrate the Class of 2020 with the reading of the names of graduates and speeches by the Rt. Rev. J. Clark Grew '58, GP '11, '21, '23 and valedictorian Jack Griffin ’20. We hope that all students will be able to join us for these important community events. Formal invitations will also be shared electronically with VI Form parents.

Other Events
Other events during the week of June 1-6 include the ceremony to honor new inductees to the Cum Laude Society, which will take place on Wednesday, June 3, and the Baccalaureate ceremony, which will be held on Friday, June 5. After discussions with our Monitors and other student leaders, we have decided that some events, including the Southborough Tea and the Gentlemen’s Social, would not work well in a virtual setting and have thus been postponed until such time when students will be able to gather in person. 

The Prize Day events, the Cum Laude Society induction ceremony, and the Baccalaureate ceremony will be held via Zoom. 

Please note that times for these events have been set to accommodate, as best we can, our graduates around the world. All times indicated are Eastern Daylight Time: 

Wednesday, June 3 
9:00 a.m. - Cum Laude Society induction ceremony (optional for all students)
