A Journey of Perseverance and Triumph

Maywood Academy’s Class of 2024 came together to celebrate their remarkable achievements in an early June morning graduation ceremony.

Principal Gabriele Barbato described his graduating class as embodying the spirit of resilience and commitment throughout their years.

“Over the last three years, I have had the privilege of watching you do amazing things everyday, including achieving a passing score on a Regents Exam, excelling in programs beyond Maywood, and accomplishing important goals during your time at Maywood, just to name a few,” he said. “Each strive you have made towards your goals, has taken you closer to this day and we are beyond proud of everything you have accomplished.”

During their time at Maywood Academy, these graduates have built a strong foundation, one that will support them as they face future challenges. Their journey has not been without obstacles, but their ability to overcome and excel is a testament to their hard work and unwavering commitment to excellence.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the parents, guardians, and faculty who have played a pivotal role in this journey. Your unwavering support, encouragement, and belief in these students have been instrumental in their success. Thank you for standing by them, nurturing their potential, and sharing their gifts with us.

To the graduates, we offer a reminder and a challenge: Don’t let good be the enemy of great. As you move forward, continue to strive for greatness, push beyond your comfort zones, and reach for new heights. Your past accomplishments are just the beginning. The future holds boundless opportunities, and we are confident that you will achieve extraordinary things.

“But your journey does not stop today,” Barbato said. “The foundation you have built for yourself here at Maywood will help you overcome any of the obstacles you may face in your future and quickly quiet those who doubt you and your ability to reach any goal you want to achieve.”

Congratulations, Class of 2024! Your journey has been inspiring, and your future is bright. Keep striving, keep pushing, and continue to achieve greatness.
