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. This wonderful space is an Austin staple with lots of seating, plenty of parking, and a location that cannot be beat. We will now host these ceremonies on Friday, May 24 starting at 12:00 PM.
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 AM: YCC Gates of Life Springs at Springs Campus 9:15 AM: Primary Gates of Life Springs at Springs Campus
Friday, May 24 9:30-10:30 AM: Creek Gates of Life at Creek Campus 12:00-1:30 PM: Middle School Graduation at ZACH Theatre
2:00-3:30 PM: High School Graduation at ZACH Theatre
In early 2019, Campus Heads will let you know more specifics, including awards ceremonies and childcare, through their Weekly Updates and on this page.

Believe it or not, now is the time to start making plans to prepare for the end of the school year. While there are still five months to go, please put the following dates on your calendar and take note of both slight changes and new additions.
As previewed in the Project Week FAQ, we are pleased to announce the first annual Senior Colloquium. This night of celebration will honor the year’s worth of work the Class of 2019 have put into their senior thesis. Seniors will present their thesis to a room full of community members - peers, parents, board members, faculty, and community partners alike. Please plan on joining us for this evening event on March 28, from 6:30 to 9:00 PM.
Headwaters' Seniors will take their IB Exams starting on May 6 and ending on May 22. These exams take the place of end-of-semester school exams. The details of each exam can be found at this link - Headwaters May 2019 IB Exam Session.
High School Commencement will take place at the ZACH Theatre on Friday, May 24, from 2:00 - 3:30 PM. The move from a Saturday event to a Friday ceremony frees up the holiday weekend for families while the intentional shift in location not only brings it closer to campus but lives out our commitment to support local and non-profit businesses. Another slight change involves the high school awards ceremony. In order to have the full focus on our graduates on May 24, and allow award recipients to be recognized in front of the entire high school, the awards ceremony will take place during an special pitso on Thursday, May 9, from 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM with a reception to follow. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend this awards event.
