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.
