Class of 2023 Graduation Ceremonies Set

Most APS seniors will graduate the week of May 15.

Even as APS seniors begin their final year of high school, they look to the date nine months from now that represents the culmination of their educational journey and the attainment of a goal -- a high school diploma.

Graduation ceremonies for most Albuquerque Public Schools students are set for the week of May 15, though graduates of the College & Career Class of 2023 will pick up their diplomas on Friday, April 28. 

The 13 comprehensive high schools and eCADEMY will hold their 2023 commencements at Tingley Coliseum. Some of the Tingley ceremonies will be held at 9:30 a.m. to allow for three ceremonies a day.

Ceremonies for the magnet schools will be at the Berna Facio Professional Development Center. 

Manzano will kick off the comprehensive high school graduations at 2:30 p.m. Monday, May 15. The Sandia Matadors will be the final Class of 2023 to get their diplomas at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 20.
