In order to participate in any graduation ceremony, a student must have satisfied all the requirements for a diploma and be subject to no active or pending disciplinary action.
In accordance with the requirements of the Standards of Quality, students who complete prescribed program of studies defined by the local school board but do not qualify for diplomas shall be awarded Certificates of Program Completion. Students who are awarded a Certificate of Program Completion may continue to take the Standards of Learning tests needed to upgrade their certificate to a diploma. Seniors will be provided information on ceremonial attire (e.g. caps, gowns, etc.) and other academic products during the school year.
