Dear Graduating Seniors and Parents:
I trust that you are having a good year and that you are continuing to grow in the knowledge and understanding of Christ’s wonderful grace. While it might still feel as though you have a significant amount of time left at the Academy, the days are quickly coming to an end; both senior trip and commencement will be here before we know it. Therefore, as arrangements for your final semester at CVCA are completed, we would like to provide you with pertinent dates for your calendar. Unless otherwise noted, all of these activities are mandatory.
MARCH 16: GRADUATION TICKETS ORDER FORM DUE
The number of tickets ordered is not guaranteed; however, CVCA will make every effort to meet all ticket requests. Ticket orders will be confirmed in April. Each person in attendance must have a ticket to enter the venue. Graduates do not need a ticket. Tickets are for general seating only. Reserved seating is not available.
