The Annual Report of Giving 2014-2015



“At Austin Prep, we are on a journey that is life-changing and important.” The Igniting Hearts, Transforming Lives Campaign has achieved its first stage fundraising goal of $1 million thanks to the generosity of many members of the Austin Prep community. This is a great beginning to our long-term campaign to fund capital renovation, to grow the endowment to expand tuition assistance, and to keep our technology in the vanguard.

This new stadium is a spectacular new “front porch” to the extensive remodeling that we are undertaking in the rest of the school, and may have inspired Austin Prep athletes to achieve a truly impressive year in league and statewide competition – winning championships, titles and awards across the full range of team sports.

With the help of our donors, this has been a year of great progress at Austin Prep.

Austin Prep parents are key participants in the Austin Journey, and this year we expanded their opportunities for involvement. The new Parents Association of Austin Prep responded by organizing a sold-out fundraising and community-building Signature Event.

Our new division heads have already upgraded the learning experience at both the middle and upper schools, and we have recruited a new Dean of Students to complete the realignment of Austin Prep’s leadership team to reflect the best practices in independent education. We continue to expand faculty professional development opportunities to uphold the tradition of teaching excellence that is the hallmark of an Austin Prep academic experience. Our expanded arts curriculum now offers video production classes for both middle and upper school students. We also implemented a new Learning Management System (LMS) to connect students, faculty, and parents in and out of the classroom. We inaugurated the Saint Augustine Lecture Series to expose our students to the life experience of accomplished individuals. Strong student-faculty bonds have always been a hallmark of the Austin Prep Journey. Through the new Student Advisory program, students develop meaningful relationships with trusted mentors who guide them during their Austin Prep years. This year we also established a Center for Teaching and Learning to support teachers to best challenge, affirm and motivate each Austin Prep student. The center assesses and supports all types of learners – from students who progress at a quickened pace to those whose learning style is not mainstream. Strengthening the academics at Austin Prep requires significant resources, and we count on your expanded financial support to enrich each student’s journey.

This fall, Austin Prep was formally admitted to the Augustinian Secondary Education Association (ASEA) – a global organization of secondary schools committed to advancing the charism of St. Augustine and the Augustinian values of veritas, unitas, and caritas. We are already participating in a number of events as part of this spiritual community. Fr. Patrick Armano was also appointed to our faculty as Chaplain to shepherd our spiritual growth. Part of the charism of St. Augustine, caritas, means serving those in need. As part of their Austin Journey, more than 25 students volunteered a day of their summer vacation to assist in the Order of Malta’s prison ministry; over February break, another group of students completed a service trip to the Augustinian missions in Peru. More locally, the entire student body participated in our first school-wide day of service on November 13th – St. Augustine’s birthday – in stewardship of the environment. At Austin Prep, we are on a journey that is life-changing and important. With the expanded support of our donors and the continued intercession of St. Augustine, we will continue to meet the challenge of preparing our students for a “life of service in the spirit of Jesus Christ.” Sincerely, James Hickey, Ph.D., P’22, P‘23 Headmaster

We completed the renovation of our stadium and outdoor athletic facility in time for our homecoming game in November. 3 Spring 2016


When Paige Christie, ’11 stepped ashore at Wissant, France on August 24, 2014, she had completed 25 of the most daunting miles of her Augustinian journey to date, becoming the first Austin alumna (and sixth Smithie) to swim the English Channel. Her time: 12 hours, 55 minutes. Her attitude: “Never had a point where I doubted myself.” Between June 23rd and July 3rd of this year, Paige will be wading into another challenge: the 8 Bridges Hudson River Swim. At 120 miles, 8 Bridges is the world’s longest marathon swim, down the Hudson from the Catskills to New York Harbor. For an endurance swimmer, this seven-day seven-stage event is the ultimate test. If Paige finishes — and she will — she will be the youngest competitor ever to do so. According to Paige, her journey began years ago with stories her brother Cameron told her about the people, teams, and clubs he was involved with at Austin Prep. When Paige enrolled, she filled long days with the school newspaper, student government, community service, swimming, and enough studying to get her an early acceptance to Smith College, where she majored in philosophy and exercise science.

“Austin Prep gave me confidence,” Paige said recently. “And you don’t get far without that. Austin has a positive culture few schools can match. The competition there is healthy and never cutthroat.” Another source of confidence for Paige were the opportunities she found at Austin to acquire new skills. “You have to move outside your comfort zone,” she said. “Early on, I recognized student government as a chance to develop skills in leadership and public speaking. After what I learned at Austin, I can express myself in any setting.”

“Augustinian thinking is embedded in every class at Austin; both sides of a question are always considered. It centers you. You develop a strong sense of who you are.” Paige’s advice to new students is this: “Don’t stick with what you’re good at. The community is supportive. It’s perfectly OK and usually a lot of fun to try something new, even if it seems dangerous. I took Miss Bishop’s class in forensics, knowing nothing about the subject beyond what I’d seen on TV. We did crime labs and studied things like the different ways blood sprays and spatters. It was not your typical class, but I loved it.”

Her view of Augustinian ethics is equally progressive: “It’s my personal compass. My Augustinian training enables me to hear a new point of view in an open-minded way, analyze it, and decide how it accords with what I know and believe. Augustinian thinking is embedded in every class at Austin; both sides of a question are always considered. It centers you. You develop a strong sense of who you are.” Law school is next. Paige is interested in public health law, but she hasn’t ruled out a career in government; it’s just too early to say. One thing that won’t be changing is her connection to Austin Prep. “I’m still in touch with several of my teachers, sharing victories and the occasional defeat,” she said. Paige hopes to see more alums take advantage of opportunities now and in the future to return to campus and support AP with their time, talent and treasure. Austin Prep, she believes, should be a lifelong relationship.

DIFFERENT Driver, DIFFERENT Course. “I never fit the mold.” That’s what Frank Capone, Jr. ’85 said when we asked him to be interviewed for Journey. Granted, he drag-races modified motorcycles on the pro circuit. That isn’t exactly typical. But talk to him for more than sixty seconds and you realize that Frank is Austin all the way. He’s a self-directed, self-motivated, self-made man who never forgets the people around him. He has followed his own path from the beginning. “When my classmates were heading off to four-year colleges, I entered a twoyear program and came away with certifications in horticulture and landscaping.” Frank then joined the family landscaping business, but they didn’t make it easy for him. “I had to work my way up the ladder — literally. I was a climber for years.” His grandfather founded the business in 1946. Then his father took over. In 2001, it was Frank’s turn. His most treasured client? Austin Prep, of course. It was Capone Landscape, Inc. that meticulously installed more than 10,000 square feet of blue grass around the approaches to the new stadium. How does someone like Frank relax? At about 215 mph, strapped into a highly modified Harley Davidson that’s burning nitro-methane fuel. Motorcycle drag racing is mainly a Southern sport, but that never stopped Frank. Backed by his close-knit crew at Capone Racing Enterprises, he competes from April to October on


never fit the mold.”

tracks as far afield as Orlando, Edmonton, San Antonio and Rockingham, North Carolina. His involvement in racing started almost casually 15 years ago, with a couple of friends. “That’s when I found out just how competitive I am,” he said. After a successful amateur career, he turned pro — and was voted All Harley Drag Racing Association Pro Rookie of the Year for 2010. Frank has broken a fair number of speed records in his time, and plans to break a few more this year when he launches a two-bike team.

6 Spring 2016

For a serial entrepreneur and champion driver, Frank Capone, Jr. is remarkably humble. Whether talking about his company, his racing team, or his years at Austin Prep, he is quick to name the people who have helped, inspired, and supported him. Looking back at AP, he remembers “Mr. Mackiewicz, Mr. Gramling, Mr. Hoffses and the late Mr. McCarthy.” According to Frank, “there was no hiding; they insisted you take responsibility, you learned, period. I’m fortunate I had that kind of rigor in my life. I might have fallen by the wayside anywhere else.” Frank’s niece, Emily Oneschuk, graduated in 2013, and he remains close to the school. He believes Austin Prep now offers students a richer, more varied experience than was available in his day. “Academics have always been a strength at Austin Prep, but the new focus on the arts is an important addition. I see Dr. Hickey breathing new life into the school in many ways. I support the changes he’s making.”

When asked the inevitable bucket list question, Frank can only shrug. He’s already having the kinds of adventures most people dream about. But characteristic of the man he is, Frank wants to help others by sharing what he has learned. “Someday I’d like to teach a class at Austin Prep. It would deal with finding your own path and succeeding at what you set out to do.” That’s a course everyone should take in high school. And who better to teach it than Frank Capone?

Varsity Football takes to the new turf field for the first official game.

Thanksgiving Eve 2015 was literally a game-changer at Austin Prep. On that night, the Cougar varsity football team took to the new Fr. Seymour turf field under the lights. Fifty years in the making, the $3.7 million dollar stadium welcomed more than 1,500 fans in the largest crowd in school history to watch a convincing opening night victory over Lynn Tech. As senior quarterback Dan Monagle recalls, “Austin Prep deserves a field as special as this one, and it was a special opportunity to be the first team to play and win on that field. It was a night we’ll never forget.” His coach agrees. The winningest coach in Massachusetts Catholic High School history, and three-time Super Bowl champion, Bill Maradei remembers it was a thrill just looking at his players’ faces. “From dust bowl to mud bowl to this.”

“We’re not a big school, but we play big,” Maradei said. “This stadium will help us recruit more student-athletes for all our boys and girls teams. It shows we take sports seriously.” Girl’s varsity lacrosse coach Liz Richards supports that view: “The whole atmosphere is different. The new stadium at AP is going to have such an amazing vibe to it. I believe that it will attract more prospective student-athletes to our school for sure.” Junior girls lacrosse player Lauren Joyce added, “Last year we had to overcome the adversity of different practice locations. We travelled to neighboring middle schools and basically any turf that would have us. Moving from grass to turf to gym floor wasn’t ideal but the team adapted. We were 19-1 and made it all the way to the Division 2 North State Final. With the new stadium this year, we are excited to be able to have home games on campus in front of big crowds.” The new stadium also boasts state-of-the-art track and field facilities. Sophomore middle- and long-distance runner Stephanie Casaletto is enthusiastic:

Boston Herald sports columnist Steve Buckley serves as the guest game commentator.

“We’re not a big school, but we play big,” Maradei said. “This stadium will help us recruit more student-athletes for all our boys and girls teams. It shows we take sports seriously.”

The Varsity Cheerleaders are super psyched for the first game under the lights!

“The old track was made out of pavement and had many cracks with weeds growing out of them. Not only was it hard to practice, it was not even a full regulation length track. For the past few years, our team has never been able to host a home meet.” She continues: “I am so excited to be able to finish my running career at AP in such a great facility, to finally be able to host home meets and run in front of my fellow students. “ Competing in the always tough Catholic Central League, from middle school to varsity, Austin Prep athletes and their coaches work extremely hard to fulfill their potential as individuals and as teams. The new stadium is an arena that is as impressive as their efforts. It is a visible symbol in which all Cougar fans and families can take pride.

True Grit As a school in the Augustinian tradition, it will not seem unusual that words like “Truth,” “Unity,” and “Love” are part of the Austin Prep vocabulary, and are encouraged every day in our students’ behavior. But everywhere today you read of a disturbing new emotional development in high school and college students.

All our teachers, coaches, and staff encourage developing habits of grit. Grit means coming to school on a day when not all your homework is done and pushing yourself through, doing the best you can and not making excuses.

Experts claim students today are overly sensitive.They don’t handle stress well. They suffer from anxiety that prevents them from completing their work and reaching goals.They are unusually sensitive to micro-aggressions or even well-intentioned constructive criticism. For many students, pressure seems to come from a variety of sources, ranging from troubling global current events to typical age-cohort social issues. It might stem from fear of failure, or competition, or getting into “the right” college, or the “perfect job.” It may come from genuine home or health issues. But the bottom line is that both educational and child development leaders have noticed that today’s generation is not very “resilient.” These students are not flexible, or fluid, or able to “go with the flow.” Fortunately at Austin Prep, we also encourage the development of another four-letter word in our students ready made to battle this condition and to strengthen individual resilience.

“I would not have developed the strong work ethic and love for learning that I currently possess if it was not for the amazing teachers who shaped and encouraged me.” Jenna Laidley ’15

Grit. 10 Spring 2016

Jenna Laidley, Colby College The positive attributes I brought to college were shaped throughout my years at Austin Prep. I have always had a tenacious personality, but this was supported by the Austin Prep community. Austin taught me to always strive for more inside and outside of the classroom. I would not have developed the strong work ethic and love for learning that I currently possess if it was not for the amazing teachers who shaped and encouraged me. My AP Biology teacher, Dr. Vanegas saw potential Maureen DiPerna, Foreign Language Faculty, administers a test.

before I even realized that science was my passion. He believed in my ability to reach whatever aspirations I possess and I now have courage to reach.

Grit means excellence – as defined by the ongoing quest for improvement. We encourage our students to strive for excellence – not perfection – and to be satisfied with knowing that they gave it their best. Grit means sticking to it. It’s about not becoming discouraged when you don’t get enough playing time but you stick it out for the team, and you continue to practice hard both to help your teammates and yourself. Grit means tenacity. You have to practice. You have to work at things. It’s about pushing yourself right through senior year, and not wanting to drop out of a tough course once you have been accepted by a college. It’s about learning how to manage fear of failure. Grit is firmness of character and an indomitable spirit. Grit is perseverance and a passion for striving to achieve longterm goals.

Another influential teacher is Ms. Barletta. I was able to spend my last two years learning from Ms. Barletta in Spanish class. I was inspired by her passion for educating and guiding students. Even in times where I would struggle, her motivation gave me the determination and drive to improve. These are only a mere glimpse of the exceptional teachers who have shaped me. At Colby College I feel confident in my abilities in the classroom and as a community member. As a Presidential Scholar at Colby I am able to conduct research with a professor as a freshman. As a result of the challenging courses I took in high school, I was able to adjust to the even more demanding workload of a college student. Because of the study habits and important teacher-stu-

Parents: The Heart of Austin Prep Over the years, the parents of Austin Prep have ensured the success of the school with their unwavering support. This tradition continues today, spearheaded by the Austin Prep Parents Association.

“The friendships made with other parents have been so important,” she said. “We are able to share stories (and sometimes commiserate about living with teenagers) and really share the Austin experience.”

The Parents Association helps promote the ideals and values of Austin Prep, and the group’s members are results-oriented and pay close attention to detail.

Susan is also excited about helping others along their journeys.

Parent volunteers serve the school by calling upon the skills they have, and discovering along the way useful skills they never knew they possessed: such as how to make hot chocolate for more than 1,000 people ­— which they did at two different events this year. Like their children, parents are also on a journey at Austin Prep. Here are some of their stories.

Susan Ardizzoni P’19 President Susan and her family began their Austin Journeys just as the school began another chapter in its journey with a new Headmaster. Susan’s strong belief in the school’s mission and evolving vision prompted her to seek a leadership role in the newly formed Parents Association. “There is always a need to rely upon parents, friends and alumni to help spread the word about the wonderful experience available at Austin,” Susan said. “Having been a part of other parent associations, I know they can add to the mission and sensed that would be the case here.”


“I’ve been so pleased to be a part of Dr. Hickey’s vision for Austin Prep,” she said. “His vision for the student experience inclusive of what happens both in and outside the classroom and how that experience is being created has been exciting to witness.”

Jim Burns P’18, P’20 Vice President When it comes to participation at Austin Prep, Jim took the advice he gave his two children. “Get involved in some way in the school,” he told them, which is also his advice to all parents. “Whether that is serving on a committee or volunteering for an event, it will make you feel part of the school.You’ll experience some of the things your children see and do on a daily basis.” “I truly like working with and admire the people on this team,” Jim said. “When I first met the other members, I realized it was an engaging and smart group, so I knew it would be a terrific experience.” Involvement has also allowed him to watch his children’s journeys unfold. “These are key ages for our kids. They spend a lot of time at school, surrounded by their peer groups and the faculty. Social, academic and life skills are developed over time with exposure to influences and influencers. I like the influencers at Austin.”

Michelle Walsh P’19 P’21 Chair, Signature Event A corporate event planner, Michelle donated her immense talent and countless hours to the Parents Association, organizing a committee to host the school’s first-ever Signature Event in the fall. The gala – open only to parents – was sold out three weeks before the event and raised $20,000 for the school. What is most impressive is that those in attendance are still talking about how much fun they had. “It was important that we host this event to give parents the opportunity to get together outside of school, without kids, and socialize,” she said. “It really was a great way to build community. There were so many returning parents and new parents mixing together. It created a very social and fun evening.” Michelle joined the Parents Association because she wanted to meet other parents – which gets difficult the older children get, especially at a regional school. “My favorite part of volunteering for this group is definitely the people I’ve met and the connections I’ve made,” she said. I’ve met so many interesting individuals that I never would have interacted with because their children were in other grades or other sports. It’s really fantastic.”

“I have volunteered at other places and had great experiences when I was busy, and other experiences when I was bored with nothing to do. I wanted Austin Prep parent volunteers to have a good experience so that they will volunteer in the future,” she said. The busier the task, the more fun it is for the volunteers. Other schools limit parent participation, but Austin Prep always welcomes its parents to campus. “I have been able to meet a lot of good people who are hard-working and have huge hearts,” Michele said. “(Volunteering) is a good way to catch up with my Austin Prep ‘mom friends’ since we sign up to work the Concessions Stand together.”

Kerry Allard P’21 Chair, Concessions The night of November 25, 2015 was an important night in Austin Prep’s history – it was the night the new Stadium Athletic Complex opened, hosting the final football game of the year. Every one of the more than 1,500 current and past parents, students, alumni, friends and community officials was excited. One person, however, was very worried – the Chair of Concessions. “I had no idea how to try and sell food to that many people,” Kerry said. “I’d never been in the new (Concession Stand) building and I knew the crowd was going to be enormous and hungry.”

“We all pitch in and help each other out,” Kerry said. “I can’t imagine not being part of this group.”

Up to that point, Kerry had been working with a small group of parents to operate the Concessions Stand in the MultiPurpose Facility after school. The Stadium Opening event required far more planning, supplies and volunteers than ever. Her new friends in the Parents Association stepped up en masse to assist, and more than 20 parents turned out to help. The chilly night’s big seller was hot chocolate, and the volunteers orchestrated a plan that involved assembly lines, multiple oversize pots of boiling water, countless paper cups and two trips to the grocery store for more hot chocolate mix.

Michele Williams P’19 Coordinator, Signature Event Volunteers Volunteering has never been a chore for Michele. “It’s the people that make it fun and enjoyable,” she said. “Everyone wants to make Austin Prep even better than it is. I have found that this group is very willing to give back to the Austin community and have fun at the same time.” When asked to help with the Signature Event, Michele welcomed the opportunity to rally volunteers, to coordinate assignments, and to ensure everyone who wanted to help was able to contribute. She enlisted the help of Lin Chabra P’19, P’20 and together they recruited 32 volunteers for the event.

“It was one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had,” Kerry said. “I was so relieved. We all just laughed, and laughed, and laughed, and kept making hot chocolate.” That skill came in handy again a month later, when Lessons and Carols Event Chair Brenda Boyle P’16 enlisted the same group’s help to serve hot chocolate to 1,000 current parents and students. “We all pitch in and help each other out,” Kerry said. “I can’t imagine not being part of this group.”
