As graduation requirements have been amended for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, students will be graduating on a rolling basis through June as they complete course requirements.

Some students in Greater Winston-Salem Inc.’s Senior Academy program have already graduated while dozens more are working on their final assignments now.

In-person Senior Academy visits have been halted since mid-March, but with support from WS/FCS, our mentors have been able to remain in contact with students to support their educational journey.

East Forsyth High School student Raylin celebrates graduation.

In an effort to recognize and honor all graduates and their work in a timely manner, all 16 Winston-Salem/Forsyth County high schools will host a virtual commencement ceremony to recognize the Class of 2020. The week following the virtual ceremonies, schools will host a drive-by diploma pickup which will include a chance for graduates to walk across a graduation stage and take pictures. A face to face graduation ceremony will be scheduled when conditions allow.

The premiere broadcast of all ceremonies will be on WS/FCS Cable 2 (Spectrum customers) and streamed online via Cable 2 on the district website located here.
