Honors

  • At graduation, we honor students for their academic achievement using the Latin college model: summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude. This calculation is based on the student’s weighted GPA. The student’s final GPA earned on June 6 is the calculation that is used to determine these honors. Students will receive their medals during the graduation rehearsal and they will be honored during their ceremony.

Caps and Gowns

  • Seniors have already ordered their caps and gowns. The cost is covered by Minnetonka High School. Lifetouch will deliver caps and gowns on May 18 during lunch periods. If for some reason a senior did not order one, Lifetouch will have extras on hand.

Tickets

  • Each senior will receive five tickets.
  • Each senior must pay a graduation participation fee of $28, which can be paid online beginning May 18, 2017, via Skyward Fee Management.
  • If you need financial assistance paying this fee, please contact Mary Beth Wiig (Ext. 5821) in the Guidance Office.
  • Seniors must show their receipt (a printed copy or an electronic version) when they pick up their tickets in the Main Office in May.
  • Networking with other members of the class of 2017 is encouraged if you are in need of extra tickets. The Main Office can only distribute five tickets per graduate.
