  • 10:00AM: Prize Day Ceremony. This is an optional event for families. If you'd like to come, we welcome you. If not, and your student wins an award, we will have a professional photographer taking pictures. (Parents will receive an email if your student has won an award. Please keep this notification confidential until the ceremony.)

  • 7:30PM: Class Night Celebration. Join us as we celebrate the members of the senior class with readings, musical performances and a special slideshow.

  • 1:00PM: Goodbyes & Dorm Move-Out.
    • Parents and graduates are welcome to say their goodbyes in the Dining Hall. Parents may help their child in their dorm room.
    • To avoid a charge, students should make sure to turn in their room and mailbox keys to a staff member before their departure.

Dress Code Requirements

Graduation requires a special dress code for members of the Class of 2023, 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.
