Private Graduation Option

Private Graduation Option
Posted on 05/15/2020
NEW! Schedule a brief private ceremony. 
We are excited to announce that Seniors can now book a brief personal graduation ceremony on May 28-29.


Since planning began on April 3, the graduation planning committee has spent many hours debating the appropriate balance between the safety and well-being of our students and the desire to give our seniors the chance to celebrate their accomplishments. Every decision was made based on the best information available at the time, including specific direction from the Ohio Department of Health and Governor DeWine's office.

However, given the advancement of the Responsible Restart Ohio plan, and our ongoing commitment to be as flexible as possible given the current constraints, XCS has decided to add an option for seniors who would like to take advantage of it. This program will be separate from the virtual graduation, and is not required for that program. 

From May 28-29, students may choose to reserve a 10-minute time slot to come in for a personal ceremony with Mr. Torrence and Dr. Lofton. Scheduled by appointment, students and up to five (5) family members will have the chance to come in to the High School for a brief presentation that will include the opportunity to take photos and video.

Students will walk the stage in their cap and gown, and families may take photos and/or video of the presentation by school administrators; social distancing and safety protocols will be in place, and we will continue to observe ODE guidelines for small group gatherings. Complete directions for students and their families will be communicated at the time of booking. 

To book an appointment, call Assistant Principal Megan Winston at 937-562-9907.

In order to finalize the schedule, all appointments must be booked by Friday, May 22 at 12:00 noon.
