Update: New Places, Times for In-Person High School Graduations

The district's 13 comprehensive high schools and eCademy are planning outdoor ceremonies at Nusenda Community Stadium; magnet schools plan to hold their ceremonies at Civic Plaza.

Updated April 5, 2021, based on New Mexico Public Education Department guidelines for graduation.

Albuquerque Public Schools is planning outdoor high school graduation ceremonies the week of May 10th. The district's 13 comprehensive high schools and eCademy are planning ceremonies at Nusenda Community Stadium, 1601 Arroyo Vista Boulevard NW. The other magnet school ceremonies are scheduled for Civic Plaza in downtown Albuquerque. 

Graduates will be limited to two guests each in accordance with the public health order if Bernalillo County is still considered high-risk for the spread of the coronavirus (Yellow Level according to the state's Red to Green Framework.) Adjustment may be made if the state lowers the county's risk level, including moving the magnet school ceremonies to the Kiva Auditorium and allowing four guests per graduate.  

Dates for the graduation ceremonies, which were announced earlier in the school year, remain the same, but times have been adjusted to allow for possible weather delays.
