SJND Class of 2023 Shines at Commencement

St. Joseph Notre Dame High School celebrated the graduation of 120 students on May 27 at College of Alameda. It was SJND’s 141st commencement. The diverse class amazed us for four years, much of which was disrupted by the pandemic. Still, their resilience and perseverance were evident by their accomplishments in and outside of the classroom.

With stirring speeches by outgoing Principal Julianne Guevara, long-time retired Principal Tony Aiello, a valedictory address by Sarah Lisanti, and music by SJND musicians and singers, we honored the Class of 2023 in typical SJND style. We wish all members of this year’s graduating class health, happiness, and a fruitful pursuit of continued education and learning wherever their journeys take them. Fly high, you Pilots!

Members of our Class of 2023 were accepted to an impressive array of colleges and universities, including Ivy League schools Columbia University, Brown University, and Yale University; private schools such as Stanford University, Santa Clara University, Boston University, and Villanova University; the United States Naval Academy; many schools in the UC system; and stellar community colleges known for facilitating transfers to four-year universities.

Not only are the destinations impressive, but members of the Class of 2023 were offered more than $9.1 million in scholarship money to pursue their studies. SJND graduates are in demand and sought after by some of the best universities in the country.
