Dress Code Recommendations

Graduation requires a special dress code for members of the Class of 2022, which is: khaki pants, navy suit jacket, white or blue dress shirt and a Marvelwood necktie (provided by the school), or a modest white knee-length (or longer) dress or an all-white pants suit.

We recommend dressy casual for all guests for the weekend.
