2022 Graduation - May 21st at 11 am, Burton Col



Our philosophy – Graduation is a privilege earned through much hard work, sweat, and tears by many and, as such, it is treated with the upmost respect and dignity that it deserves.


The following information is for all potential graduating seniors and their parents/guardians:


NOTE:  Only graduating seniors will be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony.  This means that the student has passed all required graduation exams as well as having met all requirements of the diploma track under which they are obligated.  In addition, the student must remain in good standings both with regards to attendance and discipline.  All these things factor into the eligibility of the potential graduate.  Failure in any of these areas may result in the student being denied marching in the graduation ceremony in May.




Seniors are reminded that i-Contracts, Credit Recovery, AP testing, and any other necessary attendance must complete by its due dates.


CAP and GOWN: All our senior supplies are ordered through Graduate Sales.  The ONLY items we require seniors to order are their cap and gowns, diploma covers, and stole – a minimum of $125. Everything else is optional but please understand that once you placed the order you are contractually obligated to pay that debt before you will be allowed to participate in graduation.
