  • Carmel Academy Graduates Largest Class in School History

    As it culminated its 20th anniversary year, Carmel Academy graduated its largest class in school history on June 14th.

    The student-designed graduation ceremony centered around “20 Years of Daring,” in keeping with the theme of the school year. The school’s 33 graduates poignantly reflected upon what they learned at Carmel, and how the school has shaped and prepared them for their future. Through personal writings and songs, in both Hebrew and English, the graduates shared their memories, as well as their aspirations for the future based on the foundation they received at Carmel Academy.

    “Throughout our years at Carmel, we have grown so much as people, as Jews, as life-long learners, and as citizens of the world,” said graduate Talia Siegel Moss.
    The graduates shared in Hebrew excerpts from their yearlong project Shorashim, or Roots. The project was modeled after an Israeli initiative that has become a nation-wide tradition, where the students researched their family’s history and connection with the Jewish people.

    “In essence, it was a journey of self-discovery for each of us,” said graduate Ben Marinoff-Spindell. “Through this project we reflected on how we view ourselves within our family’s heritage and enhanced our understanding of Jewish peoplehood.”

    Carmel Academy seventh graders Francesca Margolius and Nili Sprecher had been playing on the school’s baseball team for a number of years. As the only girls on the all-boy team, and with their growing interest for the American pastime, the two young athletes decided it was time for a league of their own.
     
    They took that dream and made it reality, launching Carmel Academy’s first-ever softball team. The team of ten Carmel Academy girls took to the softball diamond for their inaugural game in mid-April.
