Name one person you have studied in class whom you would most want to talk with over lunch. Mitch Albom
What is one piece of advice about Upper School you would give to the Class of 2024 (current 8th-graders)? Don’t feel like you have to change yourself to fit in, always stay true to who you are. And always remember to be kind to your teachers!
What is one piece of advice about being seniors would you give to the Class of 2021 (current juniors)? Enjoy everyday of senior year, you never know when it’s going to be your last! Cherish the time you have with your friends and always be kind to the underclassmen.
What will you miss most about CA? Getting to see all my friends everyday. Also going down and visiting the nurses office and getting to meet all the kids.
What teacher, coach or staff member has made the biggest impact on you and why? My advisor, Mrs. Eden. From the first day of freshman year, she has always wanted the absolute best for me. She has supported me through all the ups and downs of high school and I am forever grateful for her. There is no one else I would be happier to have as my “school mom.”

Name one person you have studied in class whom you would most want to talk with over lunch. Jacob Clifford
What is one piece of advice about being seniors would you give to the Class of 2021 (current juniors)? Cherish these last moments with your friends and family that you will have, because before the year is over, you will realize that those moments are the ones that will matter most. Make your next year count and enjoy the time that you've got left!
What will you miss most about CA? My friends, as they have been with me throughout my whole journey here at Columbus Academy and they've helped me become who I am in these past three years. They are the ones that have helped me integrate and welcomed me with open arms, they are the thing that I will miss most after I graduate.
