To each a unique path
On May 25, Camelot Academy celebrated its 30th anniversary by graduating nine seniors from the stage of the Carolina Theatre in what has become a unique tradition: lampooning the graduates in skits performed by the underclassmen, followed by heart-felt senior speeches that reflected on past challenges and future plans.
Camelot Academy’s Class of 2013 achieved remarkable academic success in accruing more than $1.5 million in merit scholarships and 45 acceptances to some of the most prestigious educational institutions in the country, including Harvard, Duke, Barnard, Sarah Lawrence, Oberlin, UNC-Chapel Hill, University of Pennsylvania and NYU. This was made all the more noteworthy by the challenges they overcame in doing so, including struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder and Asperger’s syndrome.
During the course of the proceedings, the spotlight was shared among the various divisions of the K-12 independent school, while the philosophy of the school – to provide each student a unique path to success – was reinforced both comically and reflectively.
In addition to the graduation ceremony, Camelot Academy is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the launch of an alumni association.
