Save the Date
Our graduation ceremony will be held on the evening of Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park. The ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m. with graduates arriving at Millennium Place between 5:15 & 5:30 p.m. Following the Commencement Ceremony, a Grand March and dance will take place in the same venue.
Graduation, or Commencement, is primarily an academic celebration where a student’s educational achievements are recognized. Because it is a ceremony for the conferment of diplomas, students participating in the Commencement Ceremonies must be on track to earn the Alberta High School Diploma, Certificate of Achievement, or Certificate of School Completion.
Grad tickets will go on sale in early May.

Fort High arranges for eligible grade twelves to wear a rented gown and stole as well as a purchased cap and tassel during the Convocation Ceremony. Grads will be called down to the office and measured for their gowns in semester two. Grads who will not be here in second semester, please go to the office to be measured before this. It is your responsibility to get measured.
The Commencement Gowns, stoles, and caps will be at the Grad venue for Grads to pick up shortly before the Commencement Ceremony. Grads will be given instructions about where to enter, pick up gowns etc. during the rehearsal lunch on May 21st, 2019.
Grads have purchased the cap and tassel and may take them home after the ceremony. Following the ceremony (and after the Grad has had a chance to pose for some pictures!) the rented gown and stole must be returned to the location it was picked up at.
This is a mandatory assembly for all graduating grade 12 students held on Tuesday, May 21st. The rehearsal will begin shortly before lunch and last the entire lunch period. Lunch will be provided for all grads. During this assembly, grads will be made familiar with the order of events for the Commencement Ceremony on the following Saturday as well as any last-minute information about Graduation day.
