BSHS Graduation Diploma Ceremony

The Ballston Spa High School will host a diploma ceremony for the Class of 2020 on Thursday, August 6th (rescheduled from Tuesday, August 4, 2020 due to the weather) The “drive through” ceremony was designed with social distancing and mask requirements in place for those participating. It will be held in front of the High School where families will be driving each graduate to the stage area at a designated time. They will exit the car and cross the stage to receive their diploma from school administrators and Board of Education members.

Graduates will have their photo taken with school officials on stage and then proceed off the stage where they can have photos taken by a family member.

All graduation speeches have been pre-recorded and will be released via email, twitter, and posted to the website on the morning of August 6th.  Graduates will receive a packet of information which includes a copy of the speeches, a keepsake and gift from the PTSA.

The ceremony will be broadcast live via YouTube so additional family members and the community can view the presentation of diplomas. The ceremony will begin promptly at 1:00pm and continue until all students receive their diploma, approximately 5:40pm. It may be viewed at

Congratulations to the Ballston Spa High School Class of 2020!
