Congratulations to the recipients of the 2020 US Prize Day awards. At King, excellence occurs in a community context. Our 2020 Prize Day recognizes individuals as embodiments of excellence in a diverse range of areas that are all important to our School - but the fact is that no one can achieve anything alone. "Teachers, classmates' comments or debates in class or in study groups or teams, great assignments, careful coaching - this is what supports excellence. We all call on each other to seek excellence, and we at King never stop seeking it," says Marnie Sadlowsky, Head of Upper School.

During the last three weeks of the school year, all seniors develop and complete their own Senior Projects. The program encourages each senior to study, work, or become involved in exploring an area of interest that might engage and inspire him/her. During KingIsHome, students found creative ways to stay connected, research family roots, and explore a passion.
Nine members of the Class of 2020 joined an elite group as inductees into the Cum Laude Society. They joined eight of their classmates who were inducted last year. This year, as we are learning remotely, each inductee was recognized and celebrated via a personalized video in which faculty members recounted their experiences partnering with the inductee as they pursued their paths to excellence at King.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020! Thanks to the guidance and support of their teachers, college counselors, and families, the successes they created for themselves at King helped them earn acceptances to some of the best schools in the country.
