And the celebrity prep school grad of the week is…

…Charlie Day of the Portsmouth Abbey School in Portsmouth, RI.

Day grew up in Middletown, RI and went on to play baseball at Merrimack College. He is a writer producer and actor in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Day also played the part of Dale in the movie Horrible Bosses, where he was sexually harassed by his boss, played by Jennifer Aniston. Pretty funny movie.
