A public display courage by a student may guarantee a "yes" from an Academy girl.

At the start of every school year, during the first two months of classes, Academy girls socialize with boys from different schools and grade levels. After a couple months of becoming comfortable with different crowds and making new friends, boys begin to ask girls to homecoming.

From posters, to gestures, to trips, and surprises these are the best proposals Academy girls have received as invitations to Tampa Catholic’s homecoming on Oct. 28, 2017 and Jesuit’s homecoming on Oct. 14, 2017.

Football games draw crowds of high school students into one area that makes it a great place to publicly ask a girl to homecoming.

Madison Bissett (‘20) got asked by Sophomore at Jesuit, Cade Freeman, at a football game in which he presented her with a mason jar of M&Ms.

Attached to the M&M filled jar, a note read, “It would be sweet if you went to homecoming with me.”

Grace Laheart (‘21) was asked by Jesuit freshman, Andrew Garateix, who arranged for the Jesuit cheerleaders to each hold up five signs spelling “HOCO?” during one of their stunts.

Garateix stood by the cheerleaders with flowers that he presented to Laheart.

Public proposals are eventful and eye catching, but some boys prefer to keep their proposals private and inviting a girl by going to her house or taking her somewhere.

Caroline Jones (‘20) and Natalia Fonseca (‘20) were enjoying a pool day together when sophomore Jesuit students, Matthew Salustro and Cameron Alverez surprised them by coming to Fonseca’s dock by boat with flowers.
