Graduation bagpiper

Dear Parents,

As we look ahead to the winter trimester, it is time to start planning for your son’s graduation this coming June.  At this point, we are optimistic that we will be able to host an in-person Commencement, as our ceremony is unique and special in so many ways.  Honoring the members of the Sixth Form and their families, our two-day celebration is truly a signature event for Salisbury School. 

At the same time, we are also working on contingency plans in the event that the ever-changing landscape of the pandemic requires us to pivot. As we get closer, we will keep you informed of the nature of our plans.  That said, on the basis of optimism, we encourage all families to book room reservations in the area if you have not done so already.  In order to assist you in this process, we have attached a list of some hotels in the area, but there are many other accommodations that can be found through Air B&B and VRBO, or other websites. 


  • Thursday, June 3, 2021 – Pre-Graduation Luncheon and Award Ceremony
  • Friday, June 4, 2021 – Graduation

Should you have questions please reach out to me at ckeenan@salisburyschool.org.

Class of 2021 Dress Code for Graduation

In early spring, Salisbury School will work with a local retail shop, Barrington Outfitters, to provide the boys and their families with an opportunity to order and purchase their attire through this vendor.  Families are free to shop on their own, but in using Barrington, we ensure uniformity of graduation attire.

Additional Reminders:

We anticipate that COVID-19 protocols such as masking and socially distancing will be in place, please plan accordingly.

Show your pride for Salisbury School by displaying your diploma. Order a special 15" x 17" frame from Framing Success. It will be mailed directly to your home and diplomas can be easily inserted. To purchase yours visit www.framingsuccess.com.

Please remind your boys that all school rules are in effect throughout the final graduation ceremony.
