Schools can be considered special, relatively new and artificial cultural communities. They are institutions exercising probably the greatest influence on the society in our knowledge-centred world. That's why it is interesting and necessary to observe and interpret the culture of these communities. The present study analyses the use of space in the graduation ceremony of a specific, ecumenical school using the methods of semiotics. Among the diverse systems of signs, space as sign appears both as object and proxemic code. While observing these two semiotic components of the rite, it appears that the semantic content of the analysed space is manifold. On the one hand, it symbolizes the graduation ceremony as a rite of passage. On the other hand, it symbolically manifests group solidarity, system of values and norms of the community that is its Christian world conception and the special ecumenical nature of the school. At the same time, space has an important role in providing the experience of a „complete celebration".
