CLASS of 2022 GRADUATION VENUE AND DATE

For Senior Parents only; seniors will be asked to complete a similar survey through Schoology.


We are excited to begin planning for graduation and looking forward to celebrating with you, your family, and your friends. Our graduation venue is tentatively planned at RIT on June 25th, however with vaccination mandates, we are exploring options.


At this time, RIT's policy requires graduates and all guests to show proof of vaccination to enter the venue. RIT may reconsider this requirement but as of now, we must plan accordingly. We have explored options for our ceremony and are looking for your input and preference. We ask that you rank your choices using the link below. We will share results and plan development soon.
