Under the theme "An Evening in Paris," Trinity Chapel Academy held its first prom at on Saturday.
This year’s 10-student senior class is the first for the school, which is paired with church. Its high school program started in 2007 and added a grade each subsequent year until this year, which marked the first time every K-12 grade was in place.
“We didn’t want them to miss out on anything,” Headmaster Albert LaBoy said of Saturday’s prom, also noting college tours and advising, academics, athletics and the school’s first graduation, set for May 27.
“We wanted to make sure they didn’t miss out on having a prom.”
The school started in 1998 as a K-3 program. LaBoy, who has been headmaster since the beginning, said the school progressively added higher grades until stopping at 8th.
“And finally in 2007, we said: ‘Hey, let’s go forward with it,’” LaBoy said of the high school’s inception.
The total K-12 enrollment was 285 this year.
“We’re hoping to have that or better for next year,” LaBoy said. “We’re very excited for what the future holds.”
