Saturday’s Alexandria City High School graduation is back as an indoor, in-person event

Alexandria City High School seniors will celebrate their graduation in-person this Saturday (June 4) at George Mason University’s EagleBank Arena.

Due to the pandemic, last year’s graduation was held outdoors in Chinquapin Park — right next door to ACHS. In 2020, the ceremony was completely virtual. The graduation has otherwise been held at GMU.

This year’s class is the first to graduate since Alexandria City High School changed its name from T.C. Williams High School. Seniors are allowed seven ticketed guests at the event.

The event begins at 9:15 a.m., and speakers will include ACPS Superintendent Gregory Hutchings, Jr., ACHS Executive Principal Peter M. Balas and students.

The last full day of school for all other ACPS students is Friday, June 10.
