What does my grad fee cover?
Grad Fee Package of $110.00 (GST of $5.24 included):
- Sitting Fee for Grad Picture $30 (The sitting fee is to be deducted from the grad's photo order from ICON)
- Purchase of Grad Gown/Stole $30
- Purchase of Grad Cap/Tassel $10
- Grad Mug $10
- Diploma Cover and Insert $20
- 2 Ceremony Tickets for Mom/Dad $10
- 1 Official Ceremony Photo n/c

This must be paid before Grad photos are taken. It is a "package deal" as we order early in the school year. If for some reason, ABJ is unable to host the cap and gown ceremony, the only part that will be refunded is the 2 Ceremony Tickets for Mom/Dad-$10.

Grad Information Video
Due to the inability to gather in person for a parent meeting, this year's grad advisors elected to instead put an informational video together. There will be a Grad Information Video released on Thursday, October 26 at 6:00 pm. The link will be sent to grade 12 student and parent/guardian emails. The video will include information relating to fees, grad photos, grad committee plans, and ceremonies. There will also be an opportunity provided for parent(s)/guardian(s) to ask questions and a grad FAQ will be developed.
