The New Richmond High School Orchestra and Choir will be performing during the ceremony.

Common Ground, which is a group of local Youth Ministry Coordinators, organizes the New Richmond Baccalaureate ceremony.

Baccalaureate services originated at the University of Oxford in 1432 when each bachelor was required to deliver a sermon in Latin as part of his or her final academic requirements.

In the United States the term generally refers to a non-denominational ceremony held a few days before high school or college graduation. Unlike the massive commencement exercise held in stadiums or arenas, baccalaureate ceremonies offer a quieter, more intimate opportunity to pause and reflect on this rite of passage, hear faculty members offer advice to the graduation class and enjoy students' musical talents.
