It was a whirlwind week at Waynflete, but final events have come to a close and suddenly the hallways feel oddly quiet. We had two wonderful ceremonies for our graduating seniors—Baccalaureate and Commencement. Click below to see photos and poetry readings from the events.
Waynflete’s Class of 2019 is a group of accomplished young adults with an impressive list of colleges and universities that they will be attending!
Below is the list of where our 76 graduates will matriculate this fall.

Over the past decade, Waynflete’s sixth-grade class has closed out the year with a culminating event—a museum that showcases student learning. This year’s museum focused on the theme of the Ancient World.
Katrina St. John’s seventh-grade earth science students recently welcomed Dana Waring from the Harvard Medical School genetics lab to class. Dana, who is the the cofounder and education director of the Personal Genetics Education Project, spoke about CRISPR and its potential role in helping prevent climate change. (CRISPR is a gene editing tool that allows scientists to remove or deactivate a gene within an organism’s genome. It is being used for many applications, from eradicating mosquitos to curing sickle cell disease.)
