The Ceremony:

Graduates are able to purchase as many Ceremony tickets as they would like. The graduate does not need a ticket, but anyone attending the Ceremony does. Tickets are $20.00 plus transaction fees.

There will be a charge for parking at the Expo Centre. Ticket kiosks are located inside the Centre. The Expo Centre will be busy so please allow extra time for this step.

It is general seating within the Expo Centre. The venue is large and all seats have a clear view of the stage and viewing screens. Accessible seating is available.

Graduates should wear light, breathable clothing under their black grad gowns, and their grad cap.

After the Ceremony, many graduates use the bathroom space at the Expo Centre to change into their formal wear. Once changed, graduates often go to the Legislative Building for photos. These photos are not organized by the school, however, candid photographers may be on site.

The Prom - Night of Neon Lights:

Graduates are able to purchase as many Prom tickets as they would like. It is usually just the graduate and their immediate family that attend the prom. Prom tickets are $25.00, and graduates and their guests all need to purchase tickets.

At the Prom, there will be a video viewing that highlights the Graduating Class of 2022. There will be a special dance to start the night which will be for the graduate and a person that is important to them. We will also have a photo booth, and other photo opportunities in our beautifully decorated gym. There will be water available and lots of dancing!

Please note that this is a school event, and school rules apply.

We are so excited to celebrate the Graduating Class of 2022! Please contact us with any questions you may have.
