High School Commencement

Social opportunities abound in the High School -- from the annual domestic overnight trip to the prom -- but none are more festive or sentimental than those surrounding graduation. Whether writing and delivering their own graduation remarks, or listening to the inspiring words from one of our renowned guest speakers, graduating seniors have the opportunity to reflect on all that Baltimore Lab School means to them… and the exciting future that lies just ahead: life after Lab!

As students move through Baltimore Lab School, they acquire an enviable education, preparing them for a rich choice of college and career paths. But they acquire something more – something we believe is even more important: self-knowledge. From the earliest years, our graduates have been taught to understand their learning styles, articulate their strengths, and self-advocate as they move through life. Your son or daughter will leave Baltimore Lab School with greater self-esteem, deeper self-confidence, and an unsinkable enthusiasm for the possibilities that lie ahead.
