Dedicated To Excellence In Education


    In alignment with the current public health status in Fulton County and the substantial spread of COVID-19 in the state of Georgia,

    Atlanta Public Schools will postpone the 2020 in-person graduations, previously scheduled for the week of July 20th, to a later safe date.

    The safety of our graduates, families and district employees remain a top priority.

    While we understand that this decision will be a disappointment to the Class of 2020 and their loved ones, we commit to rescheduling

    graduations when the community health status improves. Again, we still believe #APSGrad2020 is #worththewait and look forward to honoring

    our graduates in person soon! To submit questions concerning this decision, go to the Let’s Talk feature on the homepage of our website.

    Akil Shaw, 18, literally marches to the beat of his own tune. An accomplished musician, he will graduate from Benjamin E. Mays High School with a music scholarship. His success as a musician will offset the cost of tuition at Alabama A&M University, Bethune-Cookman, Morehouse or FAMU, where he’ll major in electrical engineering.
