An important commencement rehearsal takes place as part of our all school meeting on Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. on the Village Green, and it is imperative that your son attend this meeting. You, your family, and guests are invited to attend our chorale concert at 2 p.m. and our Senior Awards Ceremony at 5 p.m. which will conclude by 6:45 p.m. All seniors must attend the awards program.  Following the awards ceremony, seniors are required to spend Saturday night with their parents, either at home or at their hotel lodgings. Please be sure they return to campus on Sunday morning in plenty of time to gather for Commencement.  This tradition helps the weekend flow smoothly and ensures a good night's rest before the big day.
