Directions  

To ensure the health and safety of both our vaccinated and our unvaccinated guests, seating is limited; each graduate will be able to reserve seats for a maximum of six guests.  

In the event of heavy weather, the ceremony will be postponed until Sunday, June 27th. An announcement of the postponement will be posted on the Academy Website and guests will be notified via email.

Contactless tickets are required for all attendees including Graduates. Graduates will be emailed a personalized invitation with instructions on how to reserve tickets.  Only Graduates are eligible to reserve seats.  Our "Contactless Tickets" are non-transferable and all attendees will be scanned into the venue. 

All attendees must be registered and provide the Academy current contact information in the event we are required to assist with contract tracing efforts.

Commencement Day

What to Expect

On Saturday, June 26, 2021, Commencement is scheduled to begin at 1000. In the event of heavy weather, the ceremony will be postponed until Sunday, June 27th (an announcement will be posted on the Academy website and guests will be notified via email).

  • The state requires that “the ceremony must be kept as brief as possible,” so our event will be shorter than a traditional commencement. Nevertheless, each graduating student will have the opportunity to be recognized and walk across the stage.

  • All graduates and guests will be required to register and obtain tickets in advance. Guests  can only be admitted into the site with a ticket.

  • Our Campus visitor policy prohibits communal gatherings and receptions on campus before and after the ceremony itself.

  • The CDC recommends that unvaccinated individuals wear masks at all times when they are unable to maintain six foot social distancing.
