Maj. Reggie Hargrove II - Class of 2005 (Alumni Monday Speaker)

Maj. Reggie Hargrove II, Class of 2005, joined us as the Alumni Monday speaker on April 8, 2024, as the world awaited the solar eclipse later in the day. He encouraged the boys to "find their own North Star" by discovering their life's purpose and chasing after it wholeheartedly. 

alumni monday - Maj. Reggie Hargrove

After graduating from SAA in 2005, Reggie attended Reagan High School and then went on to the Air Force Academy in Colorado. He now works as an Account Executive in Technology Consulting. 

In his engaging presentation, Reggie walked us through some core memories while at The Academy, including the 8th grade class trip, playing on the basketball team, and even some important life lessons. He continued by reminding the boys that it's important to cherish the relationships built during their time at SAA, from the brotherhood among peers to the inspiration provided by faculty and staff. 

He concluded by encouraging the boys to always work hard, be kind, and keep an open mind. He emphasized the importance of remembering that things might not always turn out how they want, but it could lead them to a new ultimate purpose, a new "North Star." 

About Alumni Mondays: Each Monday, we welcome an Academy alumnus to speak to SAA boys during chapel. During this presentation, our alumni speakers share meaningful stories and lessons from their days at SAA. View Alumni Monday Showcase

Class of 2024

While it is bittersweet to see our Class of 2024 prepare to graduate, it is our hope that they remain in touch with us at The Academy as they continue their education. Our 8th grade Cadets have had a very busy spring, including the 8th grade class trip, the Shakespeare Play, Military Ball, Alumni/8th Grade Luncheon, 8th Grade Debate, and of course, Commencement with a luncheon to follow at Estancia del Norte. What an accomplishment these boys have achieved!

8th grade debate

Two teams of 8th graders challenged each other on the Ellison Hall stage to debate whether the United States should implement a universal basic income (UBI) in the annual 8th Grade Championship Debate. Held on Wednesday, May 15, this event underscores the emphasis The Academy places on developing public speaking skills, as students articulate their ideas confidently, think critically, and engage in formal discourse – all in front of a large audience of faculty, families, and peers.
