Important Graduation Update for 2024
Each year, our graduating class grows a bit larger than the previous one, and graduation becomes a bigger and bigger event. We think it's wonderful! However, 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 not one, but TWO graduation 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. The sign-up form will be sent out in January, so keep an eye on your email and our socials. 

The Barker Creek graduation page on our website is continually updated as details are finalized and can be referenced at any time. Check it out for event details, order forms, Senior photo submission instructions, and more!
