This page has a lot of very important information about finishing up the school year with important dates and events. Please read it carefully so that you are prepared for graduation.




  • May 16th -Graduation @ 2:00 pm at NAAC

The NAAC is located off 66th and Highway 93, we will be graduating on the field of the football stadium and the audience will sit in the west stands. HERE is a map to get to the stadium.
  • This year, we will only be using the WEST gates for audience seating and the graduation stage/seating will be at the center of the field. All families will enter the stadium and sit in the WEST seats. Graduate seating will be divided into two sections and students will be assigned their seats based on last names.
  • The county is not limiting the number of guests and you will NOT need a ticket to enter the ceremony. The ceremony is free for guests, but all students must pay the $65 graduation fee. This fee covers the cost of the ceremony.
  • Graduation Agreement- THIS survey lets us know your intent on walking at the ceremony or not and is what we create the seating chart off of. If you are going to attend the graduation ceremony on May 16th at 2:00 pm at the NAAC you MUST fill out the survey. If you do not fill out the survey, you cannot participate in the graduation ceremony. DUE MARCH 17th.

 

  • Faculty Addressor - It is a tradition at Arvada High School that the Senior class selects a faculty member to give the class words of wisdom before you depart into the world with your diplomas.  The person who is selected will give a 5-10 min speech with words of wisdom to the Class of 2024. Select somebody who has had a positive impact on your education and helped you get through high school. The senior class nominated their top six faculty members.  Please vote for you top choice using this survey. 

 

  • The final vote is due by March 17th at 3:00.
