The Unity Scoop – June 28

Dear Families of Unity,

It is with immense enthusiasm that I commend our school community on concluding the 2023-24 school year!  It has been an eventful year and there is much for which we, as a community, can be grateful for.

On behalf of Unity’s full faculty and staff, congratulations to the families of our newest graduating class – the Class of 2024!  Yesterday’s ceremony was a wonderfully festive event, and I am so excited for our graduates and their postsecondary plans.  I thank our families for their contributions to the ceremony, including the stunning and heartfelt video clips put forward by family members.

In addition, I would also like to congratulate our 8th graders on their graduation from Unity’s middle school.  Wednesday’s ceremony was warm and festive and we are so excited for our graduating 8th graders as they extend their educational journey to high school this fall!

In this edition of The Unity Scoop we bring to you an abundance of graduation photos, a summary of student end-of-year awards and achievements, and milestones among our staff and team.  We also provide updates on services and resources available to families this summer, and other relevant updates from last week’s edition.

Enjoy your July and expect the next edition of the Scoop to be shared during the week of August 1st!

In unity,


Josh Beauregard

Head of School / Co-founder

Members of Unity’s basketball teams have been working hard to develop their skills in the offseason this spring.  This past week, they had the opportunity to mee with Pasha Cook, a former Division I basketball player who now works with professional athletes and leagues, including the NFL and WNBA, to provide life coaching and branding consultation.  Unity players and Pasha took part in a rich discussion on Leadership and Legacy in which a number of life lessons were shared.  Thank you, Pasha, for taking the time to meet with our student-athletes!
