The 103rd Commencement Exercises—or Graduation—will be held on Saturday, May 25. The events begin at 10:30 a.m. Assuming good weather, Commencement is held on the lawn of front Jett. In case of inclement weather, Commencement will be held indoors in Van Every Athletic Center.
Parents and guests frequently arrive one hour early to take pictures and identify their seats. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Seniors are asked to report promptly at 8 a.m. on the morning of Commencement and have several activities prior to the ceremony.
Boys wear navy blue blazers, white dress shirts, khaki dress pants, dress shoes and socks. The school gives each boy a tie or bowtie according to the boy’s wishes and it is to be worn for Commencement exercises.
Girls wear white dresses and appropriate accessories. Dress sandals are acceptable, but no casual sandals or flip-flops will be permitted. Their graduation charm and necklace—a gift from the school—is to be worn.
Yes. In order to have the appropriate quantity of food, ALL GUESTS must register here. Graduating seniors may bring up to two guests compliments of the school. You MUST REGISTER your senior AND all guests online. The fee is $16 for the luncheon. Please register no later than May 10, 2019.
Boys must be dressed in blazers, dress slacks, dress shirt and tie, dress shoes and socks. Girls must be dressed appropriately and modestly for a special religious service to include covered shoulders (no spaghetti straps) and hemlines no more that 3” above the knee.
Seniors and their parents or guardians attend a program of readings and music in Langhorne Memorial Chapel the evening prior to graduation. Because space is limited inside the chapel, we must limit inside seating to four (4) family members and/or guests.
