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.

Family members are invited!

Baccalaureate is on Sunday, May 21st, at 3 PM in the auditorium. Seniors report to the mini-gym at 2:45 PM in their cap and gowns.
