HIGH SCHOOL BACCALAUREATE
THURSDAY, MAY 25, 2023 | 6:45PM
CHURCH ON THE HILL | IN-PERSON
500 Sands Drive
San Jose, CA 95125
A baccalaureate is a traditional church service held at educational institutions prior to graduation. This is a time-honored custom practiced throughout academia around the nation.
It is a cherished experience because, unlike the enormous commencement ceremony held on Warrior Field, the VCHS Baccalaureate church service offers a smaller, more intimate opportunity for the graduating class and their families to pause and reflect on this rite of passage. Because VCHS passionately believes that our Baccalaureate is at the core of our community values, it is required that all seniors attend this event in order to participate in the final graduation ceremony.
This church service will honor the graduating class and help both our graduates and their parents/guardians focus on the blessings that God has given each of us. Graduates will receive a spiritual challenge as they head toward their future, which is why attendance is mandatory for all Seniors.
This event is intended for immediate family members only, as space is limited. All students and guests are invited to attend an informal dessert reception following the one-hour service.
We ask that Graduates arrive at 6:15pm. Traffic is often heavy at this time - please plan accordingly.
Seniors must wear their graduation robes without their graduation caps.
- Men should wear slacks, collared shirts, and ties with appropriate shoes. Sneakers and flip-flops will not be permitted. Men are required to be clean shaven.
- Women should wear a dress or slacks/skirt and a blouse in the dress code.
