FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

You must take all the photographs with the gown BEFORE graduation. AFTER graduation you can get a picture with your Diploma and Cap. Keiser Photography will be taking photographs of each student crossing the stage and an individual portrait of each student with Cap/Gown/Diploma Cover. (Prints will be offered for additional cost)
Can I have my phone to reach my parents after graduation? No. Participating seniors may not have their phones during the ceremony. Purses, phones, or other accessories should be left with parents before entering the Auxiliary Gym. An arranged meeting place should be agreed upon with your family.
Are tickets required? This will depend on Xavier's policies with COVID restrictions at the time. More information will be available as graduation approaches.
Is Xavier handicapped accessible? Yes, you will need to find a Xavier attendant upon arrival to help you with any accommodations you may need. Milford is not responsible for making accommodations for guests of our students. We will arrange specific accommodations for our participating graduates.
