Commencement 2021


First and foremost, I extend my heartiest congratulations to members of the Class of 2021 for so successfully enduring and excelling during one of the more difficult and unusual years in modern history.  As one member of the faculty so proudly stated, "you are an extraordinary group in an extraordinary year." 

The Professional Children's School's 105th  Annual Commencement Exercises were held on June 10, 2021, at The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College.  Due to coronavirus restrictions in place at the time, only a very limited audience was able to attend the live ceremony and many of our graduating seniors were unable to join us in person for a variety of reasons.

It was therefore important this year to document this significant milestone, particularly for all those who were unable to attend.  In addition to the live ceremony at The Kaye Playhouse, some portions of the Commencement program were recorded earlier on May 19th at Merkin Concert Hall.  I very much hope that you enjoy watching this celebration honoring the remarkable Class of 2021.

Sending my heartfelt best wishes, as always,

James Dawson, Head of School
