​GRAD NITE

The cost to attend Grad Nite will vary depending on the location of the event. The fee to attend Grad Nite is not refundable or transferable. The cost to attend may include the price of admission to the destination, and the bus transportation costs. Additional costs will be communicated to the students and parents. Saint Genevieve can only offer this special Grad Nite opportunity to Saint Genevieve High School seniors. Parents and/or guests will not be able to attend. All students must arrive together using transportation provided by the school; students may not travel to the location on their own. Seniors who fail any class will not meet graduation requirements, and thus will not be eligible to attend Grad Nite. Grad Nite tickets will only be sold at the main office from a set date announced by the school. Tickets must be purchased during this time as the deadline is firm. Failure to meet the payment deadline for any Grad Nite or any school event that involves some type of student payment may lead to that student being excluded from that event.  ​

​​GRADUATION CEREMONY

Graduation is a joyous occasion for the seniors and their families, and we want it to be celebrated with proper dignity and decorum.  Family and friends of all seniors are to hold their applause until all the seniors have been awarded their diplomas. After the last senior receives his/her diploma, we all can stand together and applaud for everyone.


Seniors are to report to school (senior hallway) on time as designated by the school's administration. The ceremony is an honor and a privilege given to the senior class and will be conducted in a dignified manner.  The school reserves the right to remove any student or guest from the ceremony due to behavior, which the school's administration judges to be inappropriate. The regulation cap and gown (without any additions or alterations) are the required dress. Students are expected to adhere to the school's dress code. Since graduation is a dress-up occasion, any student attire judged to be inappropriate by the school's administration may result in that student forfeiting his/her privilege to participate in the ceremony. 

 

Due to fire regulations, seating in the church will be limited. Admission to graduation will be by ticket only. Each graduate candidate will each receive a designated number of  complimentary admission tickets to the ceremony, as determined by the school's administration. ​T  

 

No helium balloons, signs, posters, noise makers, or flowers are allowed in church during the graduation ceremony. Please keep all these items in your cars. During the graduation ceremony, all video cameras must be in the back half of the church. 

 

Seniors who fail any class, who fail to make up missing credits, or fail to complete their retreat or attend/make up their Christian service event will not meet graduation requirements and thus will not be eligible to participate in graduation.​​
