Oak Hills High School

Senior Information


Oak Hills High School Commencement Ceremony will be May 18, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the University of Cincinnati.  Any senior that wants to participate in the OHHS Commencement Ceremonies, must order a minimum of cap, gown and tassel from Graduate Service who is the only vendor we work with for Commencement.  

Graduation packets will be distributed on August 30th in the seniors’ Tartan Times.  In the graduation packets, there are a variety of items that you can order including everything from announcements to key rings to clothing but the minimum to order is the cap, gown and tassel.  The packet includes prices and details of all items.

Graduate Service will be at OHHS on September 11th from 3-7 pm for Parent Order Night to take orders for cap/gown/tassel and other items.  This will be held in the Commons. You will be able to view many of the items you are interested in ordering and can take many of the extra items with you at that time. Graduate Service will return on September 12th at lunch in the Commons, again to take orders.  

Vocational students are welcome to order on September 11th and Graduate Service will also be at their schools before the December deadline.  If you would like a graduation packet early, please stop in the front office.

On September 11th, if you order only the cap and gown and tassel, the $12 handling fee is waived.  This is the only date the handling fee is waived.

The first price increase is December 11, 2018.   The price increases by a minimum of $20 on this date.

In addition to the minimum $20 price increase on December 11, the price will continue to increase based on availability and additional shipping charges.

There are NO free caps and gowns.  Graduate Service is willing to make a payment plan, however, it must be in place before December 11th.  This could be as little as $10 per month.

All remaining balances on caps/gowns/tassels must be paid in full in order to pick up the items.

If you are unable to attend on September 11th, Graduate Service’s direct line is 513 272-5890 or you can order online at www.graduateserviceinc.com.  You can also view all items on this website.

The gown is a rental and must be returned immediately following the ceremony.  You will keep the cap and tassel. Take your pictures before the ceremony.

In order to participate in the ceremony, each senior must have all fees paid, attendance in good standing, attend the mandatory practice and have ordered thru Graduate Service.

No tickets are needed for the ceremony.
