Caps and Gowns

Families have already paid for caps and gowns at the beginning of the school year. Cap and gown measurements were taken in October. Caps, tassels, and gowns will be distributed during graduation practice. Tuition must be paid, books turned in, and athletic equipment returned in order to receive these items. 


Tickets will be distributed during graduation practice in May. Tuition must be paid, books turned in, and athletic equipment returned in order to receive these items.

Exchanges will be on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Scholarship Info

A senior survey will be administered in the spring. Seniors will be asked to declare all scholarship offers they receive so that we may acknowledge these offers in the commencement program and tally the total offers for the Class of 2020. We encourage families to keep letters containing college scholarship offers as the necessary documentation for this program.
