8:45am: Student Arrival
All students must arrive promptly at 8:45am to have their senior class picture taken and to get ready for the Graduation procession.
The Graduation Ceremony will be held on the lawn behind the administration building and will last about 1 1/4 hours. In case of rain or other weather that is not conducive to an outdoor ceremony, Graduation will be held in the Athletic Center.
Unlike some other schools, we do not wear caps and gowns. We do insist, however, that the young men wear a tie and jacket, an appropriate shirt, long pants (not jeans), socks and shoes. Young women should wear dresses, dress pants or skirts and blouses and nice shoes. Some students in the past have worn traditional national or cultural attire and that is certainly most acceptable. If you have any questions about appropriate dress, please ask well beforehand and certainly not at graduation. If dress is not appropriate, the student will NOT be able to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.
Follow the ceremony, graduates and their guests are invited to a buffet lunch to be held in the Herbert S. Boyd Dining Hall.
Invitations were mailed to you in April. Included with the invitation was an RSVP card for you to indicate the number of family members attending Friday evening’s Senior Dinner and Saturday’s Graduation and lunch. To be sure that Solebury School can plan properly and accommodate all guests, please return the reply card by May 31, 2017.
