APS moved its graduation ceremonies to the basketball arena in 2019, after using the Georgia World Congress Center for several years.

The Georgia Tech venue will host 11 commencement rehearsals and ceremonies from May 22-27. The district’s contract is with the Georgia Tech Athletic Association.

Graduation events can also be viewed on the district’s Facebook page. For more information about Atlanta high school graduations, visit the district’s graduation website.
