Good Afternoon, Graduating Seniors and Families of the DSIS Class of 2020,

It is with great disappointment that I write to inform you that there will be no in-person graduation commencement ceremony for the Davis School for Independent Study Class of 2020. While we truly regret not being able to formally celebrate our grads in person due to large gathering limitations and current shelter-in-place restrictions, we are excited to still be able to honor the graduates with a virtual commencement. All details will be forthcoming, but the goal is to make a video for graduates and families with personal emphasis highlighting EACH graduate individually. While we may not be able to have our typical ceremony, it is our hope that together we can create this “keepsake” for all to remember the monumental achievement our students are celebrating in these turbulent times.  

Due to the ongoing health situation and stay-at-home orders, senior-specific details will be forthcoming about:

  • Caps & gowns 
  • Returning textbooks 
  • Distribution of Diplomas
  • Final Transcripts:  Please complete the Transcript Request Form on our website and email it to  You will want to request  two official transcripts,  one to be sent directly to the college you will be attending and one to your home address to keep as a back-up.  Please provide addresses for both the college and your  home address on that form.    This form should be completed and emailed by the last day of school.
