Congratulations Pike Class of 2024!

“Class of 2024, You are steadfast, you are generous in spirit, you are true to your whole selves, and you will continue to enrich communities as agents of kindness and compassion long after your time at Pike.”  

-Interim Head of School, Will Powers

The Pike School’s 97th graduation was a day filled with joy, pride, and a sense of accomplishment as trustees, faculty, staff, and families came together to celebrate the culmination of hard work and dedication of the Class of 2024.

Inspired by Pike’s values of Authenticity, Intellectual Ambition, and Social Good, Interim Head of School, Will Powers, encouraged students to find value in the unpredictability of their journey, reminding them that learning and growth take time.

“Be patient with yourself and trust … that with steadfast persistence, your abilities will develop and evolve.”

-Interim Head of School, Will Powers

The Eighth Grade Class Speaker truly captured the essence of the student experience. From describing some of the most challenging and memorable moments of his Pike journey, to sharing about the time he sang and danced about the time management tool, the Pomodoro Method, his animated trip down memory lane was felt by all in the audience. His exuding confidence and declaration of excitement for the future summed up what it means to be a Pike graduate. With a steady undertone of the importance of support and community, he reminded his classmates that although they are graduating, Pike will always feel like home.

“Even though we are leaving, I know that all of us will continue to embody what Pike stands for. I know that we will keep the memories we made here close to us, and always remember the amazing opportunities we got here at Pike.”

-Class of 2024 Eighth Grade Student Speaker
