End-of-Year Ceremonies 2018-2019

As we come to the end of the 2018-19 School Year, let's celebrate!
Prompted by needing to find a new location for Middle and High School Graduation (previously scheduled for May 25), we updated our end-of-year ceremonies to better accommodate our school and space needs. We are excited to host our Middle and High School Graduations at ZACH Theatre on South Lamar. We will now host these ceremonies on Friday, May 24 starting at 11:30 a.m .

In an effort to allow more spaciousness, we also moved back our Gates of Life ceremonies at Springs and Creek to allow for families with children on multiple campuses to participate fully. Please see the list of events below and mark your calendars:

Thursday, May 23
8:30-9:15 a.m. YCC Gates of Life Springs at Springs Campus
9:15-10:00 a.m. Primary Gates of Life Springs at Springs Campus

Middle and High School Events at ZACH Theatre

We ask that 8th grade graduates arrive no later than 11:00 a.m. to review seating and event details with Lisa Dubuque. Students should immediately enter the Topher Theatre and find Lisa by the stage. Students may be dropped off while parents park.

As our middle and high school events are an hour apart, we ask that anyone not staying for High School Commencement helps by vacating the parking lot for our incoming seniors and their guests who will be arriving as early as 1:00 p.m.
