Graduation Rehearsal

Rehearsal is required for participation in graduation. If you do not plan on participating in graduation, let your counselor know. Rehearsal will last about an hour. Students are to meet at AHS at 12:15 p.m. and travel by school bus to Xfinity Arena for the rehearsal.

Graduation Tickets

All guests over the age of two must have a ticket to enter the arena. Seniors are given 12 tickets for graduation. Tickets will be handed out, to students, after the Moving Up Assembly on TBD. 

Street parking outside the arena is free. If you choose to park in a garage, the cost is typically $5 -$10.

ADA Seating

Xfinity Arena has limited ADA seating available and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. We ask that no more than one family member sit with the person who needs ADA seating so that we may maximize the number of people who access these seats. Those requiring ADA seating may enter Xfinity Arena with one family member five minutes prior to the general opening of doors.
