Graduating seniors participate in Jesuit’s annual Commencement Exercises at which they receive their diplomas for completing the school’s college preparatory course and accelerated programs.

Graduates with qualifying grade point averages receive diplomas with the special commendation of Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Cum Laude. The Blue Jay Parents’ Club Award recognizes the valedictorian(s) who graduated with the highest grade point average for four years at Jesuit.
