We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of every individual who has made the Class of 2018 an outstanding one in the 118-year history of DeLaSalle High School. While their presence in our classrooms and hallways will be missed, we are eager to learn of their future accomplishments beyond the walls of DeLaSalle as they embark on a new journey in their lives.

Graduation practice is required for all who intend to participate in the graduation ceremony. It is important that everyone arrive by 8:59am. Practice starts immediately at 9:00am and lasts 1.5-2.0 hours. Seniors will receive their cap, gown, and graduation tickets during the practice.

Seniors must be present on the east side of the Basilica by 6:10pm. Commencement will begin promptly at 6:45pm. Graduates must wear appropriate attire to participate for Commencement (for men: dress pants, dress shoes, and ties; for women: dress pants or dresses, and dress shoes).Due to limited space at the Basilica, each graduate will be issued a limited number of tickets to invite family relatives. After seniors and faculty process in, guests without tickets will be admitted for standing room. DeLaSalle will again live stream the ceremony (look for the video player above). DeLaSalle welcomes Jeff Cavins, a dynamic public speaker and author, who created the popular Great Adventure Bible Study series, as our Commencement speaker.
Parents and graduates will join the school to celebrate and bless the end of high school years at the Baccalaureate Mass and Senior Recognition Ceremony on Wednesday, May 23 at 6:30pm in the Main Gym.

The evening also includes Senior Awards and recognition – such as the DeLaSalle and Islander Awards, which are the highest awards given each year to graduating seniors, and a reception hosted by our Alumni Association. Seniors must line up in the LL Gray Gym by 6:15pm.
