Graduation Celebration

Congratulations, Class of 2020!

What an incredible year it’s been! The COVID-19 pandemic transformed the teaching and learning experience in ways none of us expected. But you persevered through the changes—online education, physical distancing, and for some, illness and loss—with patience, creativity and resilience.

Now, it’s time to celebrate you and your accomplishments.


This year, we will not host a formal gathering. Instead, our celebration will be scaled back to incorporate the portrait photography and virtual video messages from SBCS, valedictorians and our academic partner universities.

UPDATE: It is with an abundance of caution that we have decided to postpone our Portrait Graduation photography sessions. (Click for full notice)
