​​​Grad 2018 - Dream it. Plan it. Do it.

The formal Graduation Ceremony will be held at the Alberni Valley Multiplex on Friday, June 29, 2018 at 7:00 pm.  

Tickets to this ceremony will be $15 each and available from Nikki Levasseur, ADSS Business Manager in early June.  Students (and families) will not be allowed to purchase tickets until their name is on the "Grad List" posted at school.  To be on the Grad List means that you academically have enough credits to graduate and have no outstanding fees or missing textbooks.

​Grad Transitions  

To be a member of the Grad Class of 2018, a graduate must have a grad plan that enables them to graduate in a timely manner.  The Grad Transitions program consists of 4 parts:

  • Grad Transitions Booklet and online forms
  • 30 hours documented work or volunteer experience
  • 90 hours documented physical activity (exempted if you successfully complete a PE 11 or 12 course)
  • Grad Exit Interview
The Grad Transition booklets are due Wednesday, March 7, 2018 and the first set of Exit Interviews are planned for Tuesday, April 24, 2018.
