Yearbook Theme Ideas


  • Organize your yearbook in order of events that occurred.
  • Club and group pages have a timeline on the page, showing the order of important events that took place within each club/group.

Look How Far We’ve Come

  • A great theme for a school celebrating a big milestone (10, 25, 50, 100 year celebration etc.)
  • Use past pictures of teachers, events or buildings.

The Journey

  • Include a quote about the importance of a journey. For example, “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.”
  • Some kind of path or trail (representational or obscure) could continue throughout the pages. 

Living the Dream

  • Create a dream-like design.
  • Feature students’ dreams of what they want to do when they grow up.
  • Include a fun page with students talking about weird dreams they have had.

Becoming Us

  • Use a quote like, “What we learn becomes a part of who we are…”
  • Focus students’ learning and how it is impacting what they want to do with their lives.

Capturing the Moments

  • Emphasis on cameras and photography.
  • Film strip connecting pages.
  • Fun page with selfies.

Our Piece of the Puzzle

  • Could include a quote like, “Realize that everything connects to everything else.” ~ Leonardo de Vinci
  • Each club or group has a puzzle piece that is a part of a puzzle put together somewhere in the book; this could be a puzzle made from a picture of the school’s mascot. 

The Adventure

  • Use a quote like, “We must have adventures in order to know where we truly belong…”
  • Pages could include facts about historical adventures or adventures students would like to go on. 

Time Capsule

  • Include descriptions and pictures of items that are currently important to students.
  • Cover could be an image of things students would leave in a time capsule.

One Step at a Time

  • Use a quote like, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
  • Use images of staircases, steps or footprints.
