Baccalaureate and Graduation

At the end of the school year, ESR students participate in a number of activities to celebrate graduation. A common meal program, the Senior Swan Song, gives seniors an opportunity to reflect on their time at ESR. Graduates plan an evening Baccalaureate service, which will take place this year in Nicarry Chapel at neighboring Bethany Theological Seminary. ESR participates with Earlham College in the Earlham graduation ceremonies, which take place on Chase Stage outdoors on the Earlham campus. And finally the Graduation Gala is another chance for students to celebrate and honor graduating seniors.
