Saint Paul’s is entrenched in tradition. From the moment a student steps on this beautiful campus on S Jahncke Avenue as an eighth-grader, they are a part of the over 100-year-old tradition of Saint Paul’s. Senior year at Saint Paul’s is made by the traditions every student experiences. The start of these senior traditions is Senior Week. From Senior Week to graduation, the seniors of Saint Paul’s will make the most of their year at Saint Paul’s where they have grown up and become men ready to make the world a better place.
To start Saint Paul’s senior week traditions, there was an outdoor barbecue on Tuesday, and this gave even more of an opportunity to grow the brotherhood Saint Paul’s instills into all students. The school was founded upon these ideas originally. This barbecue is seceded by the time-honored tradition “March through the Arch”; a long-standing event started by the Lasalian brothers walking down the same path with the Benedictines to the school. This is where the class of 2022 will walk throughout the main road of our beautiful campus, just as their brothers have in years before. These new men will then be embarking onto Unity Day, where they will spend the day in prayer and bond-building exercises with not only their class but with god too. They will then proceed to enter the ring ceremony where the senior’s “right of passage” is finally given to them after receiving their token of hard work, their senior rings. After that, the class will have a senior holiday to end the week off on Friday, where they will have the day off.
