Congratulations on an Extraordinary Journey, TNCS Class of 2020!

On Wednesday, June 10, 2020, TNCS was proud and thrilled to graduate its second class of 8th-graders. In a year during which the out-of-the-ordinary became the new ordinary, these middle schoolers faced not only the challenges inherent in adolescence, but wholly new ones as well. Through all of the pandemic upheaval, TNCS graduates stayed connected to their values and to each other. While they were forced to stay physically remote from each other, they nevertheless drew closer together. See their moving virtual graduation ceremony on our official school blog, Immersed!
