Sample Graduation Letter or Note

What You Say In A Note Or Letter To Someone Who’s Graduating

If you want to do it elegantly….

The sample letter below can be printed and sent on its own, or you can fold it within a pre-written card. Either way, I recommend that you print your letter on expensive paper.

The best way to do this is to purchase a package of parchment paper or watermarked bond paper, and keep it for printing your special letters and notes.

Here’s an example of some words and phrases you can use in a note or letter to someone who’s graduating:


I was delighted to learn that you are graduating from (name of school) in June (or soon).

My heartiest congratulations!

Graduation is an exciting time because it represents a very real achievement.

It’s also a time when you can begin to contemplate the opportunities that lie before you. Doing what was necessary to reach this goal has prepared you to reach the next one.

I am confident that you will do this successfully. And I do want to stay in touch.

With fond regards,
