All students (grade 10,11 and 12) and families are encouraged to attend the Graduation Celebration at Alternative High School from 9:00-11:00am. This is an opportunity for the whole community to recognize and celebrate the success of our 2023 graduates. 

A graduation banquet will be held in the afternoon of June 2, 2023. More information about the banquet, including tickets, time and cost will be released after Spring Break.
