Senior CAS: How High School Ends

As the 2023-2024 school year is coming to a close, and with summer on its way, students are getting ready for summer vacation. For seniors, however, their high school journey has come to a close. Graduating high school is a very important time for someone, so how has Loudoun Valley made this experience even more memorable? Loudoun Valley holds CAS, one final event for seniors to look back on their time at Valley as a whole.

CAS is a school organized activity where seniors leave school early, doing social services and creating projects based on how they have grown in areas of creativity, activity, and service throughout their high school journey. 

“I think the value that comes from CAS is having students kind of push themselves out of their norm.” stated Wendi Walker, the student activities engagement coordinator.

While CAS is a fun way to end the year, it’s also a reminder that highschool is over for seniors, and as they begin a whole new phase of their lives.

“I’m just walking through school like I normally would. Over the weekend I realized I don’t have a week left of school, and that was pretty exciting to hear,” stated Senior Bradley Bernard, a participant in CAS. 

“(It’s) very exciting, not necessarily just to get out of this place, I loved it here and really enjoyed a lot of memories, but I’m excited and ready for that next chapter.”
