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!

Class of 2020 Information 


Sunday, May 24, 2020 at 12:30 PM in the Carondelet Gym.

Graduates, please report to the Inner Court at 11:30 AM 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 at the end of Graduation after the panoramic picture.

Each family will receive four tickets for the graduation ceremony in the gym. There will be a 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 this page a few days before Graduation.

There is a very limited supply of additional tickets for viewing the ceremony in the gym. If you would like to request one additional ticket, please email Ms. Donna Akridge by Friday, April 3. All requests will be placed into a lottery and selected after the deadline. If you have a younger sister who is a current student at Carondelet, she will receive a free ticket.

Please Note: To allow for better viewing, families and graduates 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 a first-come, first-served basis on both the Carondelet and De La Salle campuses.

The Graduation ceremony will be available to watch live on May 24. The live video stream will be embedded on this page a few days before Graduation.

Senior Ball

Senior Ball was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 25, from 7:30 - 11:30 PM at San Francisco City Hall. Due to Shelter in Place orders, school staff and Senior Council are looking into alternate options.

The Senior Assembly is a formal ceremony where the Class of 2020 is honored in front of the student body and receives their Carondelet medalsa 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.

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.
