Convocation & Rehearsal

If you have completed the requirements necessary to graduate, you may participate in Yale’s Convocation. If you are not sure if you have completed the requirements, please see your counsellor. Students enrolled in courses outside of Yale that are required for graduation must have 80% completed by May 15th to be eligible to participate in the ceremony.

Convocation Rehearsal
Date:  June 19
Time:   2:30-3:30
Place: Yale 

Grads need to see where to go, what line-up you are in and who you are standing beside. We also need all the bodies there so we can see how you will fit in the rows.

You will receive your cap and gown at this rehearsal. 

You will also have to learn the procedure for crossing the stage. You will be nervous enough as it is, so let’s practice!

Convocation Tickets
Family and friends will require invitations to watch you cross the stage. Each student will receive two invitations included in the grad fee. Pick up your two invitations at lunch from Mr. Caron; listen for the announcements. You must have paid your grad fees and all other school fees. ​​​​​​If you need more invitations, they may be purchased online in SchoolCash for $10.00 each.


Convocation Ceremony
Date:  Tuesday, June 25th

Time:   11:30 am (Doors open at 10:30)
Place: Abbotsford Centre
Parking: Parking is free

Grads, please be there by 10:15 am. Do NOT be LATE! 


Things To Know
Come to the ceremony already dressed in your gown with clothes underneath. As this is a formal event, here are some recommendations for clothing choice under your gown: Black pants or skirt. a white shirt, tie, or a solid-coloured dress, and black shoes. You will not need to return the gown, so you will have plenty of time for pictures before and after the event.
