Senior Prize Ceremony/Baccalaureate/Commencement Information

Commencement weekend begins with the Senior Prize Ceremony on Friday, May 31, at 4:00 p.m. in Sparks Gymnasium, followed immediately by our traditional Baccalaureate service at 5:30 p.m. at the Pennington Presbyterian Church, and then we will celebrate at the Senior/Parent Dinner on O'Hanlon Lawn. These events are required for seniors, and we hope that their parents will join us for them, as well.

The dinner on Friday evening is a special celebration for seniors, their parents, and the faculty.

Siblings who are Pennington alumni or current Pennington students are also invited, free of charge. Because of limited seating under the tent, however, we regret that we can accommodate only a few additional guests on a first come, first served basis. There is a $40 charge per extra guest. Please register your family for the dinner here by May 18.

Commencement will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 1, on the lawn in front of Old Main, and a light luncheon for seniors and their guests will follow the ceremony. No tickets are necessary for Commencement as there is open seating. Families of students will be mailed five invitations to share with family members and friends.
