Parents should arrive by 10:30 a.m., and the ceremony usually takes about an hour and a half. Graduates and their guests are invited to a luncheon under the tent after commencement concludes. As space is limited, we ask that the total number of guests attending the luncheon not exceed eight.  

3:00 p.m. Sixth formers and their families depart campus 


Highpoint Pictures will be taking photos of sixth formers at Commencement. A picture of each graduate receiving his or her diploma, as well as each prize winner will be taken. In addition, Highpoint photographers will be available after the ceremony for photos of the graduate with families and friends. Parents should expect to receive an email around June 1st with links to a photo gallery where images can be ordered. There will be a designated photography area for family photographers and videographers as well.


For friends and family unable to join the graduates here on campus, both Prize Night and the Commencement ceremony will be streamed live on the School's website. Click here at the event time.
