The “high school service” is basically a worship service offered by a school for its graduating class and their family and friends. A baccalaureate service (or high school mass) is a celebration that honors a class graduating from a university, high school, or high school. The event is usually an interdenominational (ecumenical) service based on Christianity, although it can also be held with the liturgy of a particular tradition, especially if the academic institution is affiliated with a certain Christian denomination, such as the Catholic Church or the Lutheran Church, among others. The essential elements of the ceremony are the granting of degrees and graduation.
Degrees earned are generally awarded in ascending order, with baccalaureate degrees first and doctorates coming last. Honorary degrees are awarded, with individual citations, before or after the degrees obtained. In some institutions, this order is reversed and baccalaureate degrees are awarded last. It can also refer to a baccalaureate service, which is like a farewell ceremony for high school or college seniors.
