Class of 2017 Information

One of our goals during a cadet's senior year is to work with students and parents so that he may finish up his STA career on task, focused and informed. This specific page is designed to do so, along with information relayed to seniors in school and information e-mailed to parents of seniors.

Senior Parent Information, February 28, 2017

An e-mail was sent to all parents/guardians of the Class of 2017. Some of the information referenced documents posted here.

From the Commandant: As part of graduation practice, each senior will be inspected by the military department to ensure compliance with haircut standards. A regulation haircut is required for practice. EVERY YEAR WE HAVE A FEW SENIORS WHO ATTEMPT TO CHALLENGE SCHOOL STANDARDS… and it results in an uncomfortable situation that could have been avoided. Parents, please assist us in ensuring that this standard is met for graduation practice. Thank you for your cooperation.

 (students must be there at 7:00 p.m.)

Graduation details for attendees:
Seating at the Cathedral for graduation is on a first-come basis; there is no reserved seating. There are no tickets and no limits to the number of guests. With the ceremony beginning at 7:30 p.m., the seniors need to be at the Cathedral (the Hall of Angels in the basement) by 7:00 p.m. The boys will receive all of this information at practice. Please note that parking is a problem every year so you may want to plan ahead for that. In the past, large groups have sent a few people ahead to "save" a pew.
