The Class of 2024 Graduates Onto Their Next Adventure

On Friday, May 24, students, families, special friends, Archer Trustees, and Co-Founders Dr. Diana Meehan and Megan Callaway gathered at the Skirball Cultural Center for the Class of 2024 Commencement Ceremony. Board of Trustees Co-Chair Tiffany Smith-Anoa’i and Associate Head of School For Teaching & Learning Karen Pavliscak welcomed attendees. Tess H. ’24 gave this year’s student commencement speech, diving into this year's theme of "brilliance," and Ms. Niles gave the faculty address, exploring the multifaceted nature of "love." After a performance of the class song “Somewhere Only We Know,” Upper School Student Body President Anaiya A. ’24 introduced this year's commencement speaker, Senator Barbara Boxer. In her address, Senator Boxer reminisced about the beginnings of Archer and encouraged the graduates to persevere in the real world with self-confidence. Associate Head of School for Teaching and Learning Ms. Pavliscak and two of Archer's Co-Founders, Dr. Diana Meehan and Megan Callaway, awarded diplomas to the Class of 2024, who ended the celebration with a performance of the school song, “Within the Walls of Archer.”
