Congratulations to the Class of 2021! Join us as we gather safely in-person and virtually to celebrate this year's senior class. Each building will host two outdoor ceremonies in our stadiums to accommodate graduates and a limited number in-person guests. If you plan to attend and cheer your graduate on in-person, we ask that you please adhere to all necessary safety protocols. Masks will be required of both graduates and guests, and social distancing will be practiced to the extent possible. If you cannot join us in the stands, please stream the event to hear our student speakers and join us in congratulating this distinguished group of graduates!

Graduation Practice:

There will NOT be a graduation rehearsal this year.  Instead a video with instructions will be sent to seniors beforehand by the end of the day on Thursday, May 13. We are encouraging all students to watch this video so they understand how the ceremony will function on Saturday, May 15. 

At senior book return on May 11th, four graduation tickets will be issued to students attending graduation in-person.
