Graduation Ceremonies

Kindergarten

Our students in Kindergarten graduate just before the end of school with an evening ceremony for the whole family.  Our Kindergarten teacher compiles baby pictures and K5 pictures for a sentimental slideshow for parents.

The 2020 Kindergarten graduation takes place May 19 at 6:00 p.m.

5th Grade

Our fifth graders have a special graduation during the last week of school to celebrate their time in elementary school before moving up to middle school.

Seniors

Each year we honor our graduating high school class with a ceremony that includes the usual: val/sal speeches and words of wisdom from a visiting speaker. However, we also present their senior awards at this time and show a slideshow of the class members (pics from their childhood through their senior year) which is always a highlight for families and guests.  A reception for the families is held before the ceremony begins in order to allow them to leave and enjoy the day after all is over. Faculty and staff work together to prepare a meaningful and memorable event for our grads!

The 2020 graduation takes place Saturday, May 16, at 10:30 a.m., with a family reception in the library at 9:00 a.m.

Senior Walk

A new tradition was added with the Class of 2016 called the Senior Walk. Seniors don their graduation caps and gowns and have a processional down the lower school hallway, with Pomp and Circumstance playing over the intercom.  All the lower school students line the hallway and cheer them on!
