Counselor's Corner

Welcome!

Welcome to the Central Catholic Counselors Corner. We will be regularly updating the information by Friday of each week, so please make sure to check for new information.

Save on 2021, Graduation | Oriental TradingDear Class of 2021,

As we near the culmination of your senior year, I wanted to share some updated information with you and your parents. Also see flyer below for important dates. 

Graduation Tickets: Due to limitations from COVID-19, facilities, and parking, we will only be able to offer 4 reserved tickets and 2 general admission tickets per graduate. Families that do not need all 6 tickets are encouraged to connect with other senior families through the Facebook group or other means and offer up their extras. Tickets will be passed out to students at the graduation practice. Both ceremonies will be professionally live-streamed.

Dress Code: Seniors, please adhere to the dress code for all senior events unless otherwise noted. This includes final exams. Students who are not clean-shaven, have an appropriate haircut, or out of code in other non-remediable ways will not be permitted to participate in the senior events. At the Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation, students will be expected to wear a dress shirt, tie, dress slacks, and dress shoes. See Mr. G. if you have any questions.

Graduation Regalia: If you haven’t already done so, please remove your graduation gown from the bag. Make sure that it fits. Hang it up and follow instructions for removing wrinkles. Only medals and chords passed out at the Senior Awards Ceremony may be worn during the graduation ceremony. Do NOT decorate your cap or wear any other items during the graduation ceremony.

Baccalaureate and Graduation Times: Seniors will need to arrive on campus 1 hour prior to the start of the Baccalaureate Mass. Attendees are asked to be in their seats at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the mass. Once the mass starts, admission to the field and stands will be closed to minimize distractions during the liturgy. The gates will be reopened at the conclusion of mass.

Additional reminders and details will be sent out over the next few weeks. Let’s finish the year right. Make good choices, put forth your best effort, and represent your alma mater well.
