Commencement / Graduation

What will you wear?

This is easy!  All graduates wear black gowns and caps.  They have a great appearance and save the expense of a new outfit.

We will be ordering "Souvenir Packages" this year, which means that students will keep both the cap and gown. 

No jeans please!  This is a formal occasion and we expect our grads to be dressed appropriately.

Seating is plentiful but parking is limited at Rotary Place.  Please consider transportation options and be sure to park in designated areas.

If you will require assistance being seated, please contact the guidance office at (705) 329-4537, ext. 42262.

What to do on Commencement day:

Arrive at Rotary Place by 2:00 p.m. to pick up your cap and gown and be grouped for processional purposes.

What to do after Commencement:

Commencement usually lasts two hours.  A reception will be held at Rotary Place with refreshments for you and your guests!


Please remember to send thanks for any awards or scholarships that you have received.


Ontario Scholars

If the average of six of your final grade 12 marks is 80% or higher, then you are an Ontario Scholar.  Although there is no monetary reward attached to being an Ontario Scholar, it is a very impressive achievement.

* To have achieved 30 credits (18 compulsories and 12 optional)
* To have completed 40 community service hours
