 After the Graduation Ceremony

After the Graduation Ceremony, Grads and Guests must leave the Gym promptly as another graduation follows.  Students are to pick up their diploma in the same room they picked up their Graduation Gown.


Professional pictures will be taken of each graduate as they cross the stage.  

Each student will have a professional picture taken on stage.  We ask that out of respect guests do not disrupt the ceremony by trying to take a picture or by exiting and entering.  There will be opportunities to take pictures after the ceremony.


To retrieve the photos, please find attached the direct hyperlink to the website for commencement photos.  Students and families are encouraged to sign up for notifications as they will be sent once the images have been uploaded.  Individuals can upload their selfie and their image will be emailed directly to them, ensuring a smooth and private transaction of the images.
