Dubbed "A Red Carpet Affair," the Prom was the first to be held outside campus grounds.  It was organized by the Juniors with the main objective of giving a send-off and subsequent tribute to the Seniors, who will graduate in March as Batch 2009.

Most Romantic Couple: Lance Monasterio and Pauline CanlasThe event started with a mini-program highlighting the turnover of responsibilities from the Seniors to the Juniors.  It was then followed by a tribute video honoring the Fourth Year students. All these were then followed by the cotillion, which officially opened the JS Prom Ball.

Intermissions were featured between the Prom, mostly with different bands formed by Atenean students. Three awards were also given; Lance Monasterio and Pauline Canlas were dubbed the  Most Romantic Couple while Marco Formalejo and Marenel Vargas were the Male and Female Stars of the Night, respectively.

Response to the Promenade was generally favorable. "I loved the Prom", states Renzo Blanco, a Junior. " I wished everyday was a Prom day," he continued.  Meanwhile, Leandro Sean Villanueva, a Senior, said: "Generally, it was good." He added:  "I would like to congratulate your team."

The Juniors-Seniors Promenade is held annually during February and is organized by the Juniors.
