Graduation Information


Graduation is drawing near. The graduation ceremony will be held at the Vail Theatre of the Arts at 10701 E. Mary Ann Cleveland Way, Tucson, AZ 85747 on Monday, May 18, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.


Due to the large numbers of graduates and limited seating in the theatre, we’ve decided to utilize tickets for admission to the graduation ceremony.

Each graduate will be receiving five admission tickets via mail. Additional tickets may be requested by completing a request form (which has also been mailed to you) and returning it to the school by May 8, 2015. If you do not need all five you have been given, please return them to the school by May 8, 2015 as well, so we can make sure to fill as many seats as available.

Please note, in an effort to be fair to all families, every attempt will be made to honor your requests, but we cannot guarantee the number of tickets you request.

Parents will be notified on Monday, May 11, 2015 regarding additional tickets that can then be picked up at the school the week of May 11-15, 2015.

Plans are being made to have live streaming of the ceremony in the dining auditorium for non-ticketed attendees.

We appreciate your understanding.
