Every May, YES Prep Public Schools honors the top two students from each of our fourteen secondary schools with graduating classes during the annual Val + Sal Celebration.
The Valedictorian and Salutatorian are recognized for finishing first or second in their graduating class’s academic rankings. In previous years during a banquet, the valedictorians and salutatorians of each campus are presented with a trophy in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements.
During the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 School Years, YES Prep continued to celebrate our Valedictorians and Salutatorians, while observing public safety recommendations. YES Prep staff have surprised the Vals and Sals by delivering the awards to their homes, jobs, or other places. You can learn about our Valedictorians and Salutatorians from the Class of 2020 and 2021 here:
Information about our Val + Sal Celebration for the Class of 2022 will be shared in Spring 2022.
