Centaurus Class of 2021 Students and Families-

Graduation is almost here!  We can’t wait to see you at our graduation ceremony on Friday, 5/21, starting at 4:30 pm at Recht Field in Boulder.  Please read through these final updates so that you are prepared for Friday.

  • Parking Updates

    • Please view the Graduation Parking Map at this link to see parking options for graduation.  

    • Please note that you will not be assigned a specific parking lot. Park in Lots A, B, or C, and follow signs and directions to the stadium.

  • Arrival Time

    • You will not be able to enter the parking lots until 3:30pm. Please be patient getting into the parking lots, but make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to be seated in the stadium as the graduation ceremony will start promptly at 4:30pm. 

    • Please note that there will be another graduation ceremony following ours on Friday, so we will need to clear the stadium and parking lots soon after the conclusion of our graduation. 

  • Seating Choices

    • Directions

      • When you enter the stadium, you will have three choices for seating and will be directed to your chosen area (as long as there is still space).  Please follow this link to view seating options

        • Area #3:  South Bleachers

    • Pods

      • Seating at graduation is in pods of four seats.  Please form groups of four prior to entering the stadium and plan to sit together.  This will allow us to maximize our seating and ensure that all of our guests are able to sit closer to the graduates and stage.

  • Mask Requirements
