Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A BACCALAUREATE CELEBRATION?
This event is a time of blessing for graduating students. It reflects God’s impact in their lives up to this point and is an opportunity to ask for His guidance for their future.
Note: This ceremony is not and does not replace a Graduation Ceremony, ie. you will not be receiving a diploma from Quest.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT?
This ceremony will include a formal sit-down dinner, a gratitude tribute from students to parents, followed by a Baccalaureate Invocation, Candle-lighting Ceremony, Presentation of Blessing Bibles and Bookmarks, and a Blessing of Graduates. There will also be special music and an opportunity for various worship traditions from the families.
WHO CAN ATTEND THIS EVENT?
The ceremony is non-denominational and everyone is welcome, regardless of whether you are schooled in a public or private setting or homeschooled or may be graduating from college. Graduates, family members, and guests are all invited.
Those who are wanting a personal time of acknowledgement of what God has done in their lives will find this to be an uplifting and inspiring evening.
Once again, this event does not replace graduation.
INTERESTED IN SPONSORING A GRADUATE?
We want this ceremony to be a blessing not a burden to the graduates and their families, so we are asking outside sponsors to donate $110 per graduate to help cover the cost of the ceremony, the venue, and the gifts presented to the graduates.
