Graduation Information

Congratulations to the Class of 2019! As seniors approach the end of their last year at Jesuit, several exciting events and activities take place during the month of May.

Crusader Crossing
May 10 - During Community Time
As the Class of 2019 winds down their senior year, they begin a "crossing" from the life of a student to that of an alumnus of Strake Jesuit. During community time on Friday, May 10, a panel of Jesuit alumni will join the senior class to share their experiences about how their time at Jesuit benefited them during their transition from high school to college and beyond. Seniors will also have the opportunity to network with alumni, view their senior video, and hear their senior superlatives.

Graduation Pictures
Marc Nathan Photographers will take pictures of each graduate as he receives his diploma. Of course, you may take your own pictures, but you should remain in your seat so as not to obstruct the view of your fellow guests or disrupt the ceremony. 

If you would like to order a picture of your son receiving his diploma click here or send an email to with your son's name, your name, and "STRAKE 2019" in the subject line.  There is no obligation to order. If you have any questions, contact Marc Nathan Photographers at
