Graduation Information

The Class of 2023 Commencement Ceremony will take place on Monday, May 22, 4:00pm at Northern Illinois University. You can find detailed information on the CCR website under Graduation Information.


To help prepare for this day we need some information from all seniors. Please complete this survey by the end of September. There are two parts. First of all, we need to know how you would like your name to appear on your diploma. The second part will give us information about sizing for your cap and gown. All students need to complete this regardless of their intent to participate in the graduation ceremony. These items are paid for by the district as part of your graduation fee.
