Baccalaureate: A Moment Worth Experiencing


Baccalaureate is a tradition that stems from England in the mid-1400s, where graduates from the prestigious Oxford University gathered to reflect upon their educational journey. While it was originally a religious ceremony in the United States, it has evolved into a non-denominational service where graduates can reflect upon their thirteen-year journey in one of their last moments together as a class.

Graduation day itself is a very busy day, full of emotions and events, and attended by family and friends. However, because graduation is often a whirlwind that is over before we even realize it has begun, baccalaureate becomes a time where students can more solemnly experience what it means to be a graduate in an uplifting and personalized ceremony. It is truly a moment in their lives that cannot be recreated, and all graduates are encouraged to attend. During this event, the CVHS Choir and Orchestra will perform.

​​​Campo Verde baccalaureate is on Sunday, May 22nd, at 3 PM in the auditorium. Seniors report to the mini-gym at 2:45 PM in their cap and gowns.

Families and friends may also watch the event using a link posted on our website the day of the event.
