Each senior is allocated 10 seats at the graduation ceremony. If you ordered graduation announcements, please note that they are to announce your daughter’s graduation from SAA and are not invitations. These are not invitations to the graduation ceremony. This is our largest graduating class and seating must be limited to 10 per graduate. Please also keep in mind that our venue this year is Strake Jesuit’s Competition Gym and the majority of the seating is stadium/bleacher seats which are not suitable for everyone. We encourage you to limit your guests to immediate family who are able to navigate seating in the gymnasium.
