Graduation FAQs

Where will graduation be held?
The graduation ceremonies will be at Newlife Training & Events Center, 9923 Poplars Ave NW, Silverdale, 98383.



There are TWO ceremonies?
Yes! Each year, our graduating class grows a bit larger than the previous one, and graduation becomes a bigger and bigger event. We recognize that as the event grows, many of our students with anxiety are less comfortable. To better honor ALL our students and to allow for additional guests per graduate, this year we will be holding two ceremonies. On Wednesday, June 12th, 2024, we will hold a "smaller by design" ceremony at 11:00am and a larger ceremony in the afternoon at 2:00pm. We hope this helps to alleviate the stress some of our graduates may feel about a large gathering, and allow each of our graduates to truly enjoy the experience of being celebrated.

Graduates will be asked to sign up for one ceremony or the other. Sign up here through SignUp Genius!

How do I get my graduate's cap and gown?
Grads will receive their gown, cap, and tassel at our Ticket/Gown Pickup event on June 7th. Students will keep their cap and tassel, but gowns will be returned to BCCS after the graduation ceremony, in exchange for your student's diploma.

How many guests can attend per graduate?
Each graduate is guaranteed 5 tickets for guests.

If I can't attend graduation in person, is there still a way to be part of the event?
The Graduation ceremonies will be livestreamed on this page, so even those unable to physically attend will be able to witness their graduate cross the stage.

How much will graduation cost?
Barker Creek works very hard to keep our graduation completely free to our families. There is no cost for tickets, parking, cap and gown, or photos from the event.

Can I purchase any "extras" for my graduate?
Jostens offers graduation packages that include announcements, thank you notes, etc. View the order form here.
