Dear 8th Grade Families,


Our 8th Grade scholars have worked diligently all year, and their hard work will be recognized at the 8th Grade Promotion ceremony that will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2023 at 6:00 PM.


Ceremony/Reception: All 8th Grade scholars must check-in by 5:30 PM in the Trivium Gym. The ceremony will start at 6:00 PM with a reception to follow in the Accomazzo Quad. The ceremony and reception will be hosted by the school.

This year, 8th grade promotion will be a ticketed event. Each family will receive four tickets to the event (8th grade students do not require a ticket to attend). Tickets will be available for pickup at the Trivium Prep Art Walk on Friday, April 28. More details to come.

If you would like to be placed on a waitlist for an additional ticket for immediate family only, please complete this form.


Here are some ways you can help us prepare for the event:

Group photos should be Trivium related: field day, field trip, athletic events, school concerts, social life events, group photos, etc. but students do not need to be in school uniform.
