    Presenting Yourself at Graduation

    Graduate behavior should conform to school and professional behavior before, during, and after the graduation ceremony. Graduate appearance should adhere to the following guidelines:

    • Graduates, wear dress clothes and shoes under graduation gowns.  It is recommended that males wear a button down collar with a tie. Please do not wear sneakers or flip-flops of any type.
    • Hairstyles must permit the cap to be worn appropriately. Caps must be worn so that they sit level, rather than on the back or to the side of the head. Caps may not be decorated.
    • Graduates may not wear jewelry that hangs on the outside of the robe. Only school approved, school-issued honor cords will be permitted.

    Participating Appropriately as Audience Members

    Audience behavior should reflect the school’s desire to honor all graduates:

    • Noisemakers, beach balls, balloons, banners, and other items that could be disruptive are not allowed inside the auditorium.
    • We ask that guests remain seated during the entire graduation ceremony until all graduates have recessed.  
    • Cameras must be used from a seat.  In order to maintain clear walkways, no tripods will be allowed.  
    • We ask that guests hold applause, cheers, and shout-outs until after all graduates have been recognized.  

    Congratulations again to all of our graduates! As students, you have worked extremely hard, and we are proud of you.
