Graduates: You should arrive at Slaughter Field to line up no later than 5:40 pm. Please arrive dressed in your caps and gowns – and please wear a mask. If you haven’t already received your cap and gown, please reach out to Sharyn Iadarola for assistance: Sharyn.Iadarola@cheshireacademy.org

Cheshire Academy has arranged for on-campus, socially-distanced family photo sessions for every member of the Class of 2020 attending Commencement, by our graduation photographer, Highpoint Pictures. As a special service this year, Cheshire Academy is pleased to have arranged these family sessions free of charge.


Sessions will be available on Friday, July 31st between 3:45-5:15 p.m. If you are interested in signing up for a 5-minute photo session, schedule a time (one slot only per family): LINK


Please plan to arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled timeslot, so as not to miss it.  Families should be social distancing, so please stay in your cars until that time.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Sara Griesbach at 203-768-3378.


During the photo session, photographers will take individual photos of the graduate, and additional photos with the graduate’s family members (the two family guests that are attending). Photos will also be taken of the graduate next to the stage just after receiving his/her diploma. You will be able to view and order the photos on Highpoint’s website within two weeks, and you will be notified by Cheshire Academy when photos are ready to view. Any questions about the photos can be directed to Highpoint at 914-738-5500 or staff@highpointpictures.com.




On the day of Commencement, there will be personnel directing traffic. Parking spots will be available in the following lots: Admissions, Art Building, Field House, and along Sevigny Field. The entrance off of Route 68 will be blocked off. Please use the entrance off of Route 10 as the main entry point to campus.
