Both Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will hold personalized graduations for individual graduates on Friday, May 14.

All remaining high schools will hold either traditional graduation ceremonies or multiple ceremonies on Friday, May 28. Each traditional high school will also hold a drive-through ceremony on Tuesday, June 1, for families that opt out of the ceremony on May 28.
