On March 16, Collegiate Academy is hosting its annual Academy on Parade. This event has been going on since the 1940s and was originally a competition amongst Erie city schools.  Academy on Parade is an auditioned talent show open to all students and a celebration of school spirit. This year, there are about 20 acts, including bands, solo singers, dancers and magic acts.

The event will be held at Collegiate Academy, 2825 State St. Tickets are $5 and it is open to the public. All proceeds benefit the Collegiate Academy Endowment Fund.
