High School Graduation Ceremony Dates and Times

Based on guidance from the Johnston County Health Department and taking into consideration the growing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the county in recent weeks, the original plan to host “modified” traditional graduation ceremonies will not be possible.

We have been advised that the safest feasible way for schools to hold graduation ceremonies will be to hold drive-through/drive-in graduations. Below are the graduation ceremony dates and times for all high schools:
