VENUE: CLHS is blessed to return to the Main Worship Center, Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA, to host the 2019 Graduation Service.  The beautiful Saddleback Church Campus and Worship Center offer many amenities that bless the the Saints and their families. The graduation service will again offer a live streaming feed in the pavilion area located near the courtyard which is designed for families with small children.  The total service time will be approximately 2 hours. (9:00a.m.-11:00a.m.) with our traditional class cap toss photo immediately following the recessional.

a maximum of 15 guests/family members. Seating is first-come, first-choice, and we ask families cooperate and only save the minimum number of seats needed, not to exceed 15. Thus far, we have been blessed to not require tickets and families have cooperated well. The total capacity for seating will be 1,900 chairs and additional 1,000 tiered seating (bleacher style) in the rear of the Worship Center. Outdoor seating with live feed screens are also available near the baptismal pool on the North side of the Worship Center.  



LIVE STREAMING: For families who are unable to make it to the service, Saddleback Worship Center amenities and their professional staff help, will allow the CLHS Graduation Service to be streamed on the World Wide Web this year



GUEST/FAMILY PARKING: Guests are encouraged to park in the Worship Center and Bridge Lot on the Saddleback Church Campus. These two lots are closest to the Worship Center. Handicap parking is located in various locations and plentiful designated spots are North and East of the Worship Center. Guests should be aware that parking is first-come, first-choice, after the Worship Center Lot and Bridge Lot fill there are many outlying lots for parking.  Although there is a drop off area, there will not be a shuttle running that morning. The graduation service begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. Please note that guests should allow for a 10-12 minute walk to the Worship Center, depending on location.


GRADUATE DRESS:  Students will be provided with information relating to dress code at rehearsal and when they pick up their graduation cap and gown.  A dress code inspection will take place prior to student’s robing, and the class procession. Those students found to be out of dress code will not be allowed to participate in the service/ceremony.  Be sure that your robe fits prior to the ceremony. Have it steamed or ironed (very low heat only or toss in dryer on low for a few minutes watching closely) and hang it so it remains wrinkle free. Please be careful to have all the parts of the graduation attire required with you on graduation day – gown, cap, tassel, and any honors cords applicable.  Students will be allowed to wear CLHS honors cords (NHS & CSF), CLHS stoles, and flower leis. Other accessories will not be permitted. Please note that CLHS respectfully requests the following dress code for this service:

Girls should wear a dress. Please do NOT wear shoes that may trip you and cause a fall. There are stairs to navigate to the stage and from the stage area. Please be prepared with bobby pins, etc. to keep your cap on.  (Try your cap on ahead of time to see that it fits.) No jeans, shorts, casual wear, flip flops or beach shoes or attire allowed!

Boys, please wear dress pants, nice shirt, TIE, and preferably dress shoes.  (Try your cap on ahead of time to see that it fits.)  No jeans, shorts, casual wear, flip flops or beach shoes attire allowed!

DIPLOMAS are handed out after the ceremony.  Diplomas may be withheld for the following reasons:  monies owed to CLHS, unmet Saturday School obligations, graduation service disruptions, or deficient academic credits.  Diplomas will not be handed out in the ceremony – folders only.  Those receiving diplomas may pick up their diploma at the information areas located at a table in the courtyard outside of the Saddleback Worship Center under the white canopies.


PICTURES/VIDEOS:  Personal photographs should be reserved for before the reporting time or after the graduation service.  Please do not plan on taking pictures during the time the graduates are to be in their preparation rooms and preparing to process.  South Coast Photographic, a professional photographer hired by CLHS, will capture all graduates while receiving their diploma on the stage.  A professional videographer will also capture the service and provide a DVD, which will be available for purchase.
