• Deerfield High School Graduation Ceremony Information

    May 25, 2022
    Ravinia Festival in Highland Park
    5:00 pm

    We have confirmed with Ravinia our commencement ceremony date (May 25) and our present plans to use the full capacity of the pavilion.  At this time, we anticipate a ceremony that will include all of our graduates and their ticketed guests.  We will communicate any specific guidance regarding mitigation practices (i.e., masks, distancing..) as that date approaches.


    Every graduate will receive six tickets (twins will receive four each) for family and guest use.  Graduates, themselves, do not need to use a ticket.

    Given the size of our graduating class, we will not have any extra available tickets to distribute.  However, we will make available those tickets returned to us from families who will not be using their full allotment. Any tickets returned will be made available through a lottery system conducted on May 6. 

    Please use the link below if you will be returning extra tickets OR if you are asking to be included in the lottery for a potential extra (single) ticket if available.

    Form for returning OR requesting extra graduation tickets

    Handicapped Seating and Parking:

    Both handicapped seating and parking will be available for our ceremony, and we will provide information about both in a future communication.  Placards for each will be available upon request.

    Caps and Gowns:

    Graduates will receive their caps and gowns at the graduation rehearsal (morning of May 24) at Ravinia.  More information will be provided as we approach the date.

    Cap/gown information was collected at the beginning of the school year, and you may have already been contacted if we did not receive your information. 


    Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.  We’re excited to begin planning our celebration of Deerfield High School’s Class of 2022!
