Every other year, Academy360 Upper School celebrates a high school rite of passage: the prom. With the financial assistance of our Parent-Staff Organization and a lot of planning on the part of the staff, each prom is picture perfect. We could tell you more about it, but we think this short video of students reactions and the comments from parents say it best.

The staff very kindly spent time with Luisa and gave her much kindness and thoughtful care. Ms. Rubino, it was so nice to run into you before the prom started and we able to chat a bit about Luisa. I appreciate your kind words and help with Luisa not just at the prom, but throughout the year. Ms. Muir and Ms. Cue, much thanks!” ~ Lisa

“Hello, 360 staff. Just a little note of thanks for making Dominic’s prom a night to remember. The venue, the theme, and the candy table were so amazing. Dominic called me up before the night was over and said, “ Hey mom we are partying like crazy.” I am sure he will be talking about that night for a long time. Thank you for all your dedication to these young adults!!! ~ Jackie and Larry B.

“I would like to thank everyone who made the prom such a success for the young adults. Everyone looked so nice, and I know that Sarah had a blast! I truly appreciate that after a long week at school, so many went to the prom to help out as well.” ~ Barbara O.
“We cannot thank you enough for all of your efforts in providing your students – our children, with the opportunity to experience a prom. There has been so much anticipation about this day for months, so I was a little nervous about Stephanie and how her anxiety can get in the way of a great time. However, we could not have asked for a better outcome, which is due to your hard work, dedication, and support of all of your students!! Stephanie said, ‘It was the night of my life!!!’ She could not have been happier from the time we started taking pictures until she went to bed. My nephew even said he has not seen her this happy in about 4 years. Not only did you make the night so special but continue to do so on a daily basis which we know can be extremely difficult. Our admiration for all of you continues to strengthen as Stephanie continues to grow and matures. Please know that your efforts are so appreciated and thank you again. ~ Chris and Andy A.
