The Virtual Graduation Ceremony for the California Military Institute can be viewed beginning at 9:00 am on Friday, June 5, 2020. The ceremony will be available on this page, as well as on the PUHSD and CMI Facebook pages. While this is not a traditional graduation ceremony, we hope you will find this virtual ceremony to be meaningful and one that gives our graduates a sense of pride and the opportunity to celebrate their tremendous accomplishments



Drive-Through Graduation Ceremony

June 5th - 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

The Drive-Through Graduation Ceremony will give graduates the ability to exit their vehicle and walk across the stage in their cap and gown as they receive their diploma. Each senior will be able to bring one vehicle with their family. Families will enter on Metz Road toward the park. You will need to first stop at station #1 (located at the Metz football entrance gate) to provide your name. Students and their families will have the opportunity to stop in the north parking lot at Metz Park to take pictures with their families before proceeding to the drive-through graduation route. Students will exit their vehicle at station #2 when prompted and walk across the stage to receive their diploma as their name is called. The stage will be positioned so that families can clearly view this moment from their vehicles and celebrate with their graduates. Cherished Memories will be taking a professional photograph of each graduate to commemorate this moment.

Seniors will pick up their diplomas using the following schedule:

  • 11-11:30 am Last Names A-G
  • 11:30-12:00 am Last Names H-R
  • 12-12:30 pm Last Names S-Z

To protect our staff, we ask that graduates wear a face covering when not in their vehicle. CMI staff will also be wearing face coverings to protect graduates. Graduates may however remove their face covering for the professional photo taken by Cherished Memories. We still encourage you to decorate your vehicle to show your creative spirit and personality. Let’s show our Roughrider pride! 

If you are unable to come to the Drive-Through Graduation on June 5th, diplomas will be available for pick up in the front office on Monday, June 8th from 8 am-12 pm.
