Senior Assembly and Alumnae Breakfast

Monday, May 21 at 8:00 a.m. in the Carondelet Gym
Breakfast to follow in the Garaventa Center

The Senior Assembly is a formal ceremony where the Class of 2018 is honored in front of the student body and receive their Carondelet medals – a Carondelet tradition. This is a special moment as their schoolmates recognize the seniors for the last time.

This is an all-school assembly for the entire student body. This assembly is meant for current Carondelet students to celebrate the graduates. Most students will be unable to attend the actual graduation ceremony due to space limitations. If a graduate is receiving an award at this assembly, a private email invitation will be sent to her parents/guardians.

Attire: White graduation gown (no caps). Gowns are worn over a nice dress with low-heeled dress shoes (no flip-flops, UGGS, boots, tennis shoes or moccasins), and no caps please.

The Alumnae Breakfast follows in the Garaventa Center and is strictly for the graduates and any other alumnae that come to help.


Thursday, May 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the Garaventa Center

Baccalaureate is a special Liturgy designed to celebrate the graduating class and to gather in prayer with classmates, teachers, family and friends. We will give thanks for graduates’ time at Carondelet and ask blessings for their futures.

Immediate family are invited. However, due to space limitation, it is recommended that each graduate have only four guests in attendance. A dessert reception will follow.

Attire: White graduation gown (no caps). Gowns are worn with a nice dress and low-heeled dress shoes (no flip-flops, UGGS, boots, tennis shoes or moccasins).

Actual destination of Grad Night is a secret.

Grad Night is an all-night, drug- and alcohol-free celebration for Carondelet and De La Salle High School’s graduating seniors. Our new Graduates will spend the night enjoying music, dancing, a wide variety of activities, a special show, and, of course, lots of food and refreshments. It promises to be an unforgettable night for our seniors as they spend one last time together as a class.

Traditionally, 98 percent of the graduates attend this incredible, fun party held at a “secret” event location.

Students begin check-in at 7:15 p.m. in the Garaventa Center at Carondelet High School. Students will then be bused to the secret location for the evening festivities. Grad Night ends Monday morning, May 28, at approximately 3:00 a.m. at the De La Salle Hofmann Center. Parents: please do not arrive before 2:45 a.m. to pick up your daughter.
