In his opening day homily, Jason Robinson, offered a message of hope in a difficult time. “These are unusual times...We are indeed living in and beginning the new school year against the backdrop of a profoundly complicated set of challenges that continue to test our resolve, our courage and our adaptive capacities. I know that everyone in our school family ... has been touched in some way by the events of the past six months, whether by the health effects of the pandemic, its economic impacts, or the nation's long-delayed reckoning with racial injustice.”

“I don't want to deny for a moment how formidable the challenges ahead of us are, and yet I remain a prisoner of hope. I believe in the school and all of you and the amazing young men whose futures are entrusted to our care... My faith comes from the fact that I believe so deeply in the resourcefulness, the courage, and the grace of our community to meet any challenge placed before them with compassion, unity, love, and humility.”
