The Class of 2014 at STA is the 25th graduating class and so it was only appropriate to forever honor this class when creating a new award.  The "Silver Falcons" are so named in honor of the first class to receive them, the silver graduating class. Selection as a "Silver Falcon" is recognition of a student's outstanding career performance and development at our school.  In keeping with our Mission of developing the whole student, Silver Falcons are chosen by the faculty and staff for outstanding performance in multiple areas, including academics, religion, human relations, extra-curricular activities, and service.
