Alpha Omega Academy is happy to announce the locations and dates for the 2013 AOA graduation ceremonies. This year, AOA will host two regional graduation ceremonies, and we will again offer a virtual ceremony as well.
On May 10, the Dallas area ceremony will be held in Allen, Texas, and the Orlando area ceremony will be held in Maitland, Florida, on June 7. Each event will be a traditional cap and gown ceremony, including a special welcome, a challenging address to the graduates, and the presentation of diplomas. Each ceremony will be followed by a reception for the graduates, family members, and friends.
For graduates unable to attend one of these ceremonies, we are again offering a virtual ceremony. Our 2013 virtual ceremony will take place on Friday, May 24. This will be broadcast live online, allowing graduates to participate from anywhere around the globe. This ceremony also will include an address to the graduates and the recognition of diplomas received. In addition, any family and friends are able to watch the ceremony live online.
For graduates attending one of the traditional ceremonies, we offer an optional outing on the day of graduation known as the Day Away. This is a great opportunity for the graduates to engage in team-building activities and get to know their classmates. This year's Day Away event for Dallas and Orlando is The Ultimate Quest scavenger hunt at Dave & Buster's! Each graduate is required to be accompanied by an adult chaperone, and families are welcome to participate in the event. Graduates and family members are responsible for their own admission cost, which is between $20-25 per person.
The deadline to sign up for graduation is March 22, 2013. To be eligible to participate, each graduate must have fewer than 30 units remaining in his/her courses by March 22. If you are concerned about meeting this requirement, please contact your academic advisor. The cost to participate in a live ceremony is $150 per graduate, and the cost to participate in the virtual ceremony is $50 per graduate. All graduates receive a cap, gown, and senior T-shirt to keep.
To register for graduation, sign up for the Day Away, or learn more information, please contact your family advocate at 800-682-7396.
In addition, any AOA family who does not have a student graduating this year but would like to attend one of the graduation ceremonies is also welcome. If you are interested in attending, please notify your family advocate.
