Graduation & Activities

Due to the ongoing pandemic and local orders to shelter-in-place and limit large gatherings, Carondelet is adopting altered plans to celebrate the graduating seniors of the class of 2020. Event information will be updated below.

Graduation Weekend

FINAL DATE AND TIME: TBD
TENTATIVE: Sunday, August 2 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, yearbooks, and commemorative parade photos will be distributed in the Inner Court at the end of Graduation after the panoramic picture.

Tickets
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.

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.

Live Video
The Graduation ceremony will be available to watch live on August 2. The live video stream will be embedded on this page a few days before Graduation.

 

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 August 2 at the Creative Imaging online shop.

 

Baccalaureate

FINAL DATE AND TIME: TBD
TENTATIVE: Saturday, August 1 at 7:00 PM 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).

Senior Drive-Thru Parade

Saturday, May 16, 2020, 10 AM - 1 PM at Carondelet Campus.

After receiving such a positive RSVP count, we want to ensure a high quality, low-stress event for all graduates, so we have decided to extend the time windows for each group to allow for everyone to enjoy their experience. Please arrive at your specified time.

A-G: 10:00-10:45AM

H-M: 10:45-11:30AM

N-S: 11:30-12:15PM

T-Z: 12:15PM-1:00PM

Parade Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I drive myself? It’s highly encouraged that you have a parent, guardian, or sibling drive you through the parade so you can focus on waving and enjoying the experience. However, if you must drive yourself, please pay attention to the directions that faculty/staff volunteers give you. We are looking out for the safety and well-being of every participant and volunteer. 

How fast can I go around the parking lot? This is not the Indy 500, we ask that all families be mindful and drive slowly through campus. We would like everyone to drive no faster than 5 MPH, as there will be people moving around during the entire celebration!

Are you anticipating long wait times? If everyone comes at their assigned time, we are hoping for a smooth parade experience. Please be patient with us as we try to make this experience special for each and every graduate.

Do I have to show up at my assigned time? Yes. We do not want the awkwardness of having to turn you away, so please be mindful that we are trying our best to accommodate 200 students during a three-hour block.

Is it one car per family? Yes. We are observing the CDC rules and guidelines, so only one car per family, and only family members that live in the same residence as the student.

Do we get out of the car? There is only one spot where students and family members are invited to get out of their car. If you look at the map on Point D, we will be video recording where each student is going to college, and then we will be taking a commemorative photo with the student and their family members. Since we have lots of students to process through, we cannot offer the option to retake photos. We will be printing one 8x10 picture for every student to pick up at Graduation.

Do I need to wear a face mask? Yes, everyone needs to wear a face mask whenever they are out of the car. 

Can I take home any of the decorations? Not yet. Some decorations will be kept until Graduation weekend. After graduation weekend, there will be specific decorative items you can take home with you!

Please send any other questions you may have to mlettire@carondeleths.org and she will be happy to assist you!
