IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Baccalaureate

Baccalaureate is a student-planned and directed program for graduating seniors to reflect, share memories, and give gratitude as they leave LT and journey beyond high school. A variety of readings, song, dance, and personal reflections are presented in this program. This year's program will be in the Reber Center on Sunday, May 19th starting at 2:00pm. All graduating seniors, family, and friends are invited to watch. Tickets are not required.

Cap, Gown & Commencement Ticket Pick-Up

Tickets, caps and gowns will be available for graduates to pick-up as follows:

  • Monday, May 20th, 3:00 - 6:00 PM, Lower Level Library
  • Tuesday, May 21st, all lunch periods, NC Cafe

Caps and gowns can still be purchased through Herff Jones by calling (815) 756-4743. Students will receive four tickets for an outdoor commencement. In the event that Commencement moves inside, each student will be able to utilize three tickets. Seniors participating in Commencement do not require a ticket.

Senior Honors Recognition Event

The Senior Honors Recognition Event is a recognition of seniors by their school, their peers, and their community. Seniors who have received significant academic, athletic, activity, and scholarship awards will be recognized. Award winner’s family will be notified by mail that their student will be honored at the ceremony, but the actual award will not be disclosed until that day. This year, the Senior Honors ceremony will be held the evening of Tuesday, May 21st, at 7:00pm in the Reber Auditorium.

Senior Prom

Prom moves to The Field Museum this year on Friday, May 24, 2024 from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.! Formal attire is strongly recommended. One ticket per person is required. All tickets are $170 and will be on sale April 14 - 22 at WWW.LTHS.NET/PROM or in the Cafeteria. All students attending Prom must ride the school-provided deluxe coach buses to and from The Field Museum. Students must be at South Campus to board buses no later than 6:30 p.m. All school rules apply to Prom, and all school sanctions for violation of those rules may be used, including exclusion from participation in the Commencement exercise. All LT students and their non-LT guests must turn in a Prom Permission Slip before purchasing tickets (both available online at WWW.LTHS.NET/PROM). Extra permission forms will be available online at WWW.LTHS.NET/PROM and in the Bookstore.

Please Respect Our Neighbors

Prom and Graduation are always a fun time to gather and take pictures with friends. Please be mindful of the community and our neighbors when choosing places to gather. 

Post-Prom Celebration

Each year our Parent-Teacher Council sponsors a Post-Prom cruise on Lake Michigan to ensure a safe celebration for our graduates. Students enjoy three levels of dancing, full food buffets, and an open-air deck for viewing the city lights. Students choosing to attend the Post-Prom will return to LTHS on luxury coach buses at approximately 3:00 a.m. Formal attire is appropriate. Shoes must be worn at all times on The Odyssey and Spirit of Chicago. Since this event is not school-funded, the Post-Prom Committee encourages parental support. Without LTHS parental support, this alcohol-free event would not be possible. Tickets for this event are $55 and will be available for purchase along with your Prom ticket.

Commencement Rehearsal (Mandatory)

All graduates who wish to participate in the ceremony are required to attend this rehearsal. 

Tuesday, May 28th

2:00pm - 3:30pm

In the event of inclement weather or unfavorable conditions on the 29th and the 30th, LTHS will hold the ceremony on Friday, May 31st on Bennett Field. 

Please note that in the event of inclement weather or unfavorable conditions (such as concern with the cicadas), LTHS may determine it necessary to move Commencement into the North Campus Fieldhouse.  

Graduating seniors MUST report 1 hour before the ceremony to the South Campus Fieldhouse. Seniors who arrive late may not be permitted to participate in the ceremony. 

The Bennett Field gates will open for guests one hour prior to the ceremony. Handicapped seating will be available on the field. A live video feed will be provided by LTTV via WWW.LTHS.NET.

No flip-flops, jeans or athletic apparel, please. Due to the ceremony being held on a turf field, high-heeled shoes are not recommended.

A professional photographer will take a picture of each graduate as their diploma is received. You may purchase a copy of that picture when contacted by the photographer. We ask that no one come to the stage area to take pictures during the ceremony; balloons will not be allowed at the ceremony.

FUTURE PLANS

College Plans

The College and Career Center will be collecting data on Post-Secondary destinations for the Class of 2024. This will be reported based on a Senior Survey that will be given during the Senior Group Guidance session with your counselor on April 25th. Please make sure to indicate all application results (accepted, waitlisted, denied) as well as specifically noting the name of the one college that you will be attending. This data is invaluable to us and helps us to advise and predict admissions results for future Lions at LTHS. Your college admission is finalized when the college you attend receives a final transcript (which will be sent in June). You must list the college in Schoolinks as “Enrolling" in order for a final transcript to be sent to that destination. Please also make sure the application method in Schoolinks (Common App or College specific app) is correct. Please be sure to cancel applications to colleges that you do not plan to attend by sending an email to Admissions.
