Capping Ceremony: One Step Closer to CA Grads

Every year, a few days before graduation, Cushing holds a Capping Ceremony for seniors during an all-school assembly. Seniors are called up to Cowell Chapel stage in small groups, and after a ceremonial drumroll, they are “capped” with their mortarboards by their favorite teachers, coaches, administrators, staff, and friends. Click here for photos from this year’s event, held on Tuesday, May 19.
