Graduation and Graduation Project

Bedford High School Graduation Information


FOR PARENTS AND SENIORS this section will answer questions that may arise during the school year.  Remember—relax!  Questions will be answered and much more information will be provided throughout the course of the year.  Students will be notified through their homerooms, announcements, and hand-outs.  Check this webpage periodically to see what’s new on the graduation front.

Senior announcement information and order forms will be distributed in first period classes in March.  Orders will be taken in the cafeteria during lunches at the end of March.  If you wish, you may also order announcements from another supplier or create and print your own.

Purchasing any merchandise is optional.

How do I get my cap and gown?  Caps, gowns, and tassels will be ordered for you.  There is no charge and you get to keep them.  They will be distributed during graduation practice at the end of the year.

Graduation will be held at Bedford High School, on the football field, beginning at 7:00 p.m.   In case of rain, the ceremony will be held the same day in the BHS gymnasium.

Admission to graduation is by TICKET ONLY.  Tickets will be distributed with caps and gowns. The number of tickets seniors will receive is determined by the class size.

Be sure you have returned all books, completed all obligations, submitted your Senior Survey to the Guidance Office, and paid all school bills. *Diplomas and Graduation Tickets will be withheld for any senior who has not met all obligations.*

All seniors must attend Commencement practice.

Baccalaureate is traditionally held on the Sunday prior to graduation.

An Honors Banquet will be held to recognize those who have excelled academically.  Admission is by invitation only.

Yearbooks will be distributed at the “Sup n’ Sign.”  Food will be provided while you have the opportunity to sign yearbooks.
