A Baccalaureate service is a celebration which honors a graduating senior class from a college or high school. The Baccalaureate ceremony is a service of worship in celebration of and thanksgiving for lives dedicated to learning and wisdom. The service is held within a few days of the graduation and/or commencement ceremony, often on the Sunday or Wednesday night immediately preceding graduation.
