Graduation & Activities

It’s finally here. All of that preparation, planning, and determination culminate in wearing the white cap and gown, walking across the stage, and receiving your diploma. Congratulations, class of 2020!

All information below is for 2019.
2020 Information will be posted here when available.

Class of 2019 Graduation

Sunday, May 26, 2019 at 12:30 p.m. in the Carondelet Gym

Graduates: Please report to the Inner Court at 11:30 a.m. in your white graduation gown and cap with tassel, Carondelet medal, (CSF pins, CSF and NHS cords and tassels if applicable). Diplomas will be distributed in the Inner Court after the panoramic picture.

Younger Sisters: If you have a sister who is a current student at Carondelet, she will receive a free ticket.

Tickets: Each family will receive four tickets for the graduation ceremony in the gym. There will be an HD live video feed of the ceremony shown in the Garaventa Center. No tickets are required to watch there. Additionally, there will be a live video stream of the ceremony online. That video will be embedded on Graduation day.

All extra tickets have been claimed. You will be notified by an email from Donna Akridge if you received an extra ticket.

Have additional family members who want to attend? The Garaventa Center does not require a ticket on the day of graduation and we will also have a live stream for out of town family members to watch. Thank you for supporting Carondelet.

Please Note: To allow for better viewing, you MAY NOT bring flowers and balloons into the gym. Graduates will be asked to leave any corsages, leis or other special gifts in their assigned classrooms.

Parking will be available on both the Carondelet and De La Salle campuses.


Graduation Photos *NEW

Official photos from Graduation are taken and available from Creative Imaging. You are invited to purchase any photos from the ceremony and celebration after Sunday, May 26 at the Creative Imaging online shop.


Mandatory Graduation Practices

Monday, May 13 at 3:15 p.m.
and Wednesday, May 22 at 3:15 p.m.

All Seniors are required to attend both graduation practices prior to graduation. The first graduation practice will be on Monday, May 13 at 3:15 p.m. This first practice will last about an hour and a half, and students will receive their cap and gown at the end. The second graduation practice will be on Wednesday, May 22 at 3:15 p.m. This second practice should last a little over an hour. Students will receive the tickets for their families to attend graduation at the end of this practice. Students, please bring the shoes you will wear to graduation on this day so you have practice! Failure to attend either graduation practice may result in the forfeiture of allotted four student tickets or exclusion from participating in Grad Night 2019.


Senior Ball

Senior Ball this year will be at the San Francisco Academy of Sciences on Friday, April 12, from 7:30 p.m. - 11:30 p.m. Friday, April 12, is a student holiday and a faculty/staff professional day. Tickets will be available here soon.


Senior Assembly/Alumnae Breakfast

Senior Assembly Monday, May 20 at 8:10 a.m. in the Carondelet Gym;
Alumnae Breakfast to follow at 9:30 a.m. in the Garaventa Center
Attire: White graduation gown (no caps)

The Senior Assembly is a formal ceremony where the Class of 2019 is honored in front of the student body and receives their Carondelet medals – a Carondelet tradition. This is a special moment as their schoolmates recognize the seniors for the last time. Gowns are worn over a nice dress with low-heeled dress shoes and no caps please. 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. The Alumnae Breakfast is strictly for the graduates and any other alumnae that come to help.



Thursday, May 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the Garaventa Center
Attire: White graduation gown (no caps)

Baccalaureate is a special Liturgy designed to celebrate the graduating class and to gather in prayer with classmates, teachers, family and friends, to 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.

*Gowns are worn with a nice dress and low-heeled dress shoes (no flip-flops, UGGS, boots, tennis shoes or moccasins).
