Commencement Ceremonies

Fri 31 May 10:00am - Thu 1 Jun 1:00pm


  • 10:00AM: Prize Day Ceremony. This is an optional event for families. If you are unable to attend 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.) Parents may join us for lunch after the ceremony.
  • 4:30PM: Senior Parent Reception at Sundt House. This is a great way to relax with other senior parents before dinner. (Please note that this event is for senior parents only.)
  • 6:00PM: Senior Dinner. A long-standing tradition, the Senior Dinner is hosted by the Junior Class. (There is a maximum of four guests per family permitted for this event.)
  • 7:30PM: Class Night Celebration. Join us as we celebrate the members of the senior class with readings, musical performances and a special slideshow.


  • 10:00AM: Graduates will take their formal class photo. After this event, seniors will report to the library to prepare for the ceremony, and families should find their seats under the tent.
  • 11:00AM: Commencement Ceremony.
  • 12:00PM: Farewell Buffet Luncheon.
  • 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 2024, 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.
