Congratulations Class of 2021 and Class of 2020!

Your St. Edward’s family could not be prouder of you and your many achievements, especially during the unprecedented challenges of the past year. Graduation day is arriving soon, bringing cherished celebrations and memories. This year, St. Edward’s is excited to honor both our Class of 2021 and Class of 2020 with special festivities designed for each.

Our graduation events are carefully planned to align with our health and safety protocols. To date, they include:

  • Virtual and in-person GradFests for the Class of 2021 and Class of 2020 to kick off preparations for commencement
  • A drive-in Baccalaureate Mass, open to graduates from the Class of 2021 and the Class of 2020 on May 9, 2021
  • A fully virtual commencement ceremony for the Class of 2021 on May 8, 2021 
  • An optional in-person commencement experience for the Class of 2021 and the Class of 2020 that includes walking across the stage as well as a modified Legacy Walk

St. Edward’s will continue monitoring the conditions on campus and in our community, making adjustments to our graduation festivities as necessary to prioritize health and safety. Please visit this webpage frequently for ongoing updates. Thank you for your patience as we look forward to celebrating our outstanding 2021 and 2020 graduates!

Congrats to our 2020 and 2021 graduates!
