Senior Notes & Guidelines
Our College Counseling Office would like seniors to fill out these two surveys:
Graduation Survey - CLICK HERE to fill out form. Please share with us where you are going, admissions decisions to all schools you applied to, and how we can reach you in the future.
Scholarships Awarded - CLICK HERE to fill out the form. Please list all scholarships you have been awarded even if you are not accepting the scholarship or attending the University awarding scholarship money.
Please note: This is a different survey from the one that is used for the Rampart.
Attention parents of seniors, the 2019 Senior All Night Party (SANP) will be held immediately following graduation on Friday, May 31. CLICK HERE to register.
Register before May 13 for early bird price of $125. Don't miss out on this tradition as you celebrate with your classmates one final time immediately after graduation. Location kept secret until week of graduation. Limited financial assistance is available: please contact Lupe Tellez directly, prior to completing the registration.
Graduates depart around 10 PM directly from Chiles Center on May 31, will be picked up by designated driver at 3 am from the venue location. YOU MAY CARPOOL.
Questions? Contact Lynne O'Donnell at email@example.com
Volunteers needed: check out a list of volunteer opportunities HERE.
Participation in end-of-the-year graduation activities is contingent on several important factors:
A) Successful completion of all required classes for graduation and Christian service requirement.
B) Continuing respect for and cooperation with school regulations that apply to all students through graduation.
C) Payment of all tuition and fees owed to the school.
There are no exceptions to these requirements.
The following dress code will be strictly enforced for all three graduation events: Senior Awards Assembly, Baccalaureate Mass, and Commencement.
Ladies: Slacks, dress or skirt, dress shoes.
Gentlemen: Slacks, dress shirt, tie, and dress shoes.
NO SHORTS, FLIP-FLOPS OR TENNIS SHOES PLEASE! IF YOU ARE DRESSED INAPPROPRIATELY, YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE.
Student behavior is expected to be respectful and attentive at all times during these events. Students should give honor to classmates by respecting the dignity and seriousness of these ceremonies in both action and appearance. The following are unacceptable: chewing gum, beach balls, confetti, silly string, bubbles, horns, messages on the top of mortarboards (caps), and sunglasses. Students who violate these restrictions will not receive their diploma until such time as the Administration deems appropriate.
Tickets will not be required for the Commencement Ceremony.
Students will be entering the Chiles Center separately from their parents and families (at the entrance located near the intersection of Portsmouth and Warren streets). We ask that students park as near to this intersection as possible. Please do not park in the main Chiles Center lot. We would like to reserve that lot for families and special guests attending the Commencement.
