A Graduation Celebration Event

Verity Academy East Bay plans to offer a Graduation Event at the end of each academic year to celebrate the eighth-grade students who are promoting into high school, and the senior students who have qualified to graduate from high school. We aspire to have this be a very special, memorable occasion for each of the graduates, celebrating who they are and how God is working in their life. In order to participate in Verity Academy’s graduation event, seniors must have been enrolled in Verity Academy for both their 11th and 12th grade year.

The following are a few of the policies in place in regard to graduating and our Graduation Event:

• Participation in our Graduation Ceremony is by mutual consent, and senior students must cooperate and communicate respectfully with all volunteers in order for our celebration to honor God with unity and thankfulness.
• The Graduation Ceremony is dependent upon parents with students in 7th, 8th, 11th or 12th grade volunteering their time before, during, and/or after the ceremony. Please sign up for your top three choices to work with. You will find the Graduation Committee Options document as part of the registration process. If your student will not participate in graduation this year or next, you do not have to volunteer in this manner.
• Parents should understand that their student must meet Verity Academy’s graduation requirements in order to receive a diploma from the Academy. Verity Academy will only issue diplomas to Full Members. Partnered Members eligible for 8th or 12th grade graduation may participate in graduation ceremonies and will receive a diploma authorized/issued by their private school, but purchased by Verity Academy.
• At the time of registration, there will be an additional fee to be paid to aid in the cost of the graduation event. If you have an 8th grade student, the additional fee is $50, and if you have a senior graduate the additional fee is $100.
There are many ways our graduating seniors will be celebrated during the graduation event. A cap and gown will be provided and a presentation will be made for each graduate to highlight their interests, achievements, character, goals, and plans for the future. Each student will be presented with a diploma and will go through the ceremony of ‘turning the tassel’ as well as a formal procession and recession of graduates into and out of the sanctuary.

Eighth grade students will receive a promotion certificate and will also have a short presentation.

It is our hope to also host a reception for all students and families with their guests following the event.
