Frequently Asked Questions


When is Graduation?

The Graduation ceremony is scheduled for Monday, June 3, 2024 from 9 to 11am.

What will Graduation look like this year?

We'll be having a "walk-through" graduation at the Glendale Civic Center.

Graduates will be able to have any number of guests who will get a front row seat when they walk across the stage!

Graduates will need to wait until all guests are present before entering. They will check in at the check in table, proceed to a photo op, then proceed through the main hall to walk across the stage, receive their diploma, and shake hands with their principal. Guests will be with the graduate until just before they walk across the stage and will have "front row" visibility to take as many photos as you wish. Afterwards, guests will meet up with their graduate in the terrace garden for additional photo opportunities and visiting.

How many guests can I bring?

We are allowing an unlimited number of guests for graduation, however, all guests must be present before the graduate can enter the event. Graduates can wait in the parking lot or just outside the building to wait for their guests.

Is there parking available?

Yes! There is plenty of free parking available in lots and a structure nearby the Civic Center.

Can I bring balloons?

No, our venue does not allow balloons inside. Feel free to leave these in your vehicle or outside the venue.

Can I bring/use confetti poppers?

No, our venue does not allow confetti or confetti poppers inside or around the venue due to the difficult cleanup. We recommend saving these for home photo shoots and celebrations.

Can I bring snacks or drinks in while we wait?
