FRIDAY, MAY 28 | 11:00 A.M. (EDT)

We are excited to celebrate the 114th Commencement ceremony for the Class of 2021 with our current families! The ceremony will be held outdoors at 11:00 a.m., under a tent on Stewart Pitch (the field in front of the Jackman L. Stewart Athletic Center).  Massachusetts' guidelines allow for each graduate to have a maximum of six (6) guests attending Commencement. There will be food available after the ceremony for families and guests. 

Important registration information: Only one of the graduate's parents/guardians should RSVP for the entire graduate's party, or, if parents/guardians register separately, the total number of guests per student should not exceed six. Seating will be by family "household," in socially distanced groups. If your graduate has a sibling who is a current Berkshire underformer, please include them in your RSVP as part of the six-guest total per student. 

In the event of severe weather, the ceremony will be held indoors in the Jackman L. Stewart Athletic Center. The same guidelines for masking, seating by household, and distancing will apply.

For everyone's safety, we require that all visitors to campus must have a COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of arrival to campus OR have completed their full COVID-19 vaccination. In accordance with Massachusetts COVID-19 Safety Standards for Commencement and Graduation Ceremonies, all guests must wear a mask and maintain a social distance of at least six feet at all times from other households, faculty, and staff. Please note that each member of the party must fill out the Campus Visit Form within 72-hours prior to attending Commencement.

Please be advised: restrictions and event logistics are subject to change based on emerging state, local, and CDC guidelines. Thank you for your understanding.
