ST. THOMAS — Thirty-eight students graduated from Antilles School Saturday in a ceremony held at the school’s Mark C. Marin Center, to the delight of a full gymnasium of family and friends. As the Class of 2019 passed through the “arch of love” formed by the well-wishing staff and faculty at the end of the ceremony, they could be sure of one thing: They are, and always will be, part of the Antilles School family.

Family is at the heart of Antilles School. The bond between students, parents, teachers and other staff is something the school takes great pride in. However, for this particular class, the word family is meant literally, as well. The mothers of graduates Kelsey Swan and Danielle Brady are faculty members at the school, as are both parents of graduate Trinity Riggle.
