First graduates of Sussex Academy

Sussex Academy's Class of 2017 made history Friday night, June 2.

The 38 seniors became the first graduates of Sussex County's only public charter high school.

Dr. Patricia Oliphant, director of Curriculum and Instruction for Sussex Academy, noted that 37 of the 38 graduates will be going to college in the fall, and one graduate is going into the U.S. Army.

Four of the graduates are Hispanic: Lindsey Pérez, Alexandra Roblero, Micaela Reyes and Kleiry Ruano.

Secretary for the Department of Education, Susan Bunting, also addressed the graduates, their families and friends.

Gov. Carney emphasized his central message to the graduates - loyalty to their classmates.

"Maintain your loyalty to your friends and your principles. Make time for your friends. It's my high school and college friends and teammates who are my best supporters. That loyalty will make our world just a little bit better," he said.

The first graduates of Sussex Academy, located on the east side of Georgetown, come from all corners of Sussex County, taking advantage of the tuition-free charter school with its strong focus on academics.

Sussex Academy opened in fall 2000. It now has students in classes from sixth through 12th grades. The school is located at 21150 Airport Road in Georgetown.
