Congratulations NEO Class of 2023!

On May 26, Northeast Ohio Preparatory Academy School celebrated its Class of 2023 during a 6:30pm commencement ceremony held at Near West Theater. Valedictorian Anyla Jones and Salutatorian Milagros Redondo were honored during the ceremony that featured a spoken word performance from senior Antwone Barbour. NEO alumna Nicole Williams shared advice about life after high school. Educator, minister, and community leader Teresa Sayles delivered the keynote address where she offered words of support and wisdom for graduates. 

The future looks bright for NEO seniors who earned a total of $865k in scholarship funds. Additionally, 20 seniors are on the preliminary list to receive full scholarships through the Say Yes to Cleveland program. Of the 30 seniors in the graduating class, 26 received their diplomas during the commencement ceremony. Four students are expected to complete the credits necessary for graduation this summer. Eleven students will be attending a 4-year college or university. Two students have been accepted to trade schools and one scholar will be enlisting with the Navy. All students have been accepted to Cuyahoga Community College.  All together, seniors were accepted to a total of 22 colleges and universities, including five Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  

Principal Veda Giles-Weeks offered her congratulations saying, “We’re very proud of our seniors for their hard work and dedication these past four years.
