EVIT holds Completion ceremonies instead of graduation to honor students for completing their certification programs. All high school and adult students completing certifications during the year are invited to participate. EVIT's 40+ programs are divided between two nights.

*Important Note - We are aware of the scheduling conflicts with a couple of the high schools within our EVIT district. Therefore, any student who chooses to attend their high school event and cannot attend Completion on their assigned program night is invited to attend on the opposite night and will sit with a group of students from their school and/or others in the same situation.

  • Students may not leave early at any time during the Ceremony
