Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is honoring nearly 2,080 graduating seniors in the Class of 2020 through virtual graduation ceremonies. During the week of June 1, seniors will participate in an optional in-person recognition at their respective high schools. At the recognition events, students will have their picture taken to commemorate their graduation. These pictures will be included in each school’s virtual graduation. Photographers from Lifetouch will also take photos of seniors that parents can purchase. These events are not open to the public.

Virtual ceremonies will include a senior portrait of each graduating senior if CCPS has one on file, and a roll call of graduate names. Additionally, speeches from keynote speakers such as class valedictorian, salutatorian, school principal and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kimberly Hill, will be included in each ceremony.
