Our policy mandates that all boarding students remain on campus through Commencement on Sunday, May 16. Commencement is on Sunday from 10:15 AM to 11:00 AM, which is relatively short for graduation ceremonies. The reasons for having your sons here through the Graduation Ceremony are listed below.
- Many underclassmen are recognized and honored in the awards ceremonies at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday evening, May 15.
- We believe it is important for the underclassmen to attend the Commencement of the Class of 2021. It is a foreshadowing of the passage that the younger boys will be making in the near future. It is also an opportunity to say goodbye and bring closure to the tight friendships your sons have developed with the graduating seniors.
- The underclassmen have a role in preparing the campus for the various graduation events.
We invite you and your family to join us for any of the events on Saturday and Sunday, May 15 and May 16. Some events are reserved for the families of graduates as indicated on the schedule. I urge you to also make your hotel reservations as soon as possible.
Please contact Steve Stay should you need any assistance in preparation for your visit. We look forward to seeing you in May 2021.
