Graduating Seniors Program

Several years ago, U.S. Figure Skating launched its Graduating Seniors Program to recognize the achievements of those individuals graduating from high school who continued their training in figure skating while pursuing their academic studies.

The purpose of this program is to honor and credit those qualified graduates for their achievements during high school through the presentation of a certificate to the skater during a school function or recognition opportunity. Recognition is proudly awarded on behalf of the U.S. Figure Skating Program Development Committee to those high school graduates who meet the necessary application criteria.

Application Information

Graduating Senior information for skaters graduating in Spring 2020 is now available in the Resources Box. Please review the Graduating Seniors Award information document to answer any questions.

- General applications are due by March 1. Skaters will be notified of their award in late spring, and awards will be sent to the skater for presentation at graduation, senior awards night or other school ceremony.
