Commencement 2018

Commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2018 will occur on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27.

Commencement events begin at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 26, with a reception at the home of Tad & Elizabeth Roach for graduates and their families. Dinner follows at 7:00 p.m. At 8:30 p.m., we have an Awards Ceremony in the Sipprelle Field House to celebrate the academic, artistic and athletic work of the students. The evening concludes with a film tribute to the senior class. On Sunday, May 27, the Chapel service is at 10:00 a.m., and Commencement is at 11:00 a.m. on the Front Lawn. Lunch follows the graduation.

The traditional dress for Commencement is white dresses for your daughters and white slacks, blue shirts, navy blazers and School ties for your sons. The 50th reunion class has donated a School tie or a silver SAS cross for each member of the Class of 2018.

We ask you to limit attendance at two of the graduation events. First, for the Head of School’s reception and dinner on Saturday evening, we ask that you limit attendance to six people, in addition to your son or daughter. For the Chapel service on Sunday morning, we ask that no more than four guests attend for each graduate.

There is no limit for the number of guests at the Awards Ceremony on Saturday evening or at the Commencement exercises and luncheon on Sunday.

We look forward to welcoming you in May. Visit our Getting to Campus page for more info on local accommodations and options for traveling to SAS.
