Christopher Arena, Grace Day School’s valedictorian for 2013, received congratulations from Congressman Peter King for his outstanding test score on this year’s Catholic High School Entrance Exam. The young academic’s performance placed him among the top 25 test scores and earned him a scholarship to St. Anthony’s High School, where Christopher will matriculate this September. Well-liked by his peers, teachers and the community, academics is not the only arena in which Christopher excels. Since he was seven years old he has been swimming competitively, practicing every day after school. Those efforts have made him a nationally ranked swimmer in his age class for the past three years.
