A portmanteau of “June” and “nineteenth”, Juneteenth commemorates the anniversary of the emancipation of enslaved peoples throughout the United States on June 19, 1865.

Like other holidays celebrating a nation’s independence, Juneteenth is a time to reflect on the ...accomplishments both past and present that Black Americans have made throughout the centuries.

Let’s Get Ready stands in solidarity supporting our staff and students celebrating this momentous occasion. Happy Juneteenth!

Former Boston Access student and Weston High School graduate, Alton, will be attending @xavieruniversity this upcoming school year!

A thank you goes to Transition Coach Madeira once again for a job well done guiding our great students to the colleges of their choice. Congratulations ...Alton!
