Congratulations to Mr. Minaker on the tremendous achievement of completing his thesis! The students in the Class of 2021 would like to thank him for taking time to share his expertise and enrich our learning community.

In the IB Theory of Knowledge class, students explore what it means to produce, share, and acquire knowledge in different disciplines. On Thursday, special guest and secondary school music teacher at ACST, Drew Minaker, visited the class to discuss his recently completed thesis in ethnomusicology on the traditional Tunisian music called malouf.

They call themselves the pandemic graduating class.  Having a “normal” senior year was never an option.  Instead of giving in to disappointment, this 37 student strong cohort made the choice to have a fulfilling and memorable senior year.

Today kicked off a weekend of celebration for our seniors, the Class of 2021.  At 10:00 a.m, the National Honor Society put together a “Senior Brunch.” The brunch was for seniors and their teachers. It was a way of saying we appreciate you and will miss you. We are excited for this new tradition.

After the brunch, Senior Walk-Through commenced at 11 a.m. The seniors wore their cap and gown and did one final walk through the hallways of the secondary school and part of the elementary school. All ACST students, teachers, and employees positioned themselves in the hallways to clap, cheer, wave, and snap a photo as the soon to be graduates walk by. 

Graduation Rehearsal took place in the theater. The graduates learned how to walk into the theater, where to sit, how to receive their diploma, and most importantly when to throw their caps in the air.

Graduation will commence on Saturday at ACST.
