Commencement Information

Good evening Senior parents,


Last week, Dr. Smialek communicated with you that the Cuyahoga County Board of Health rejected our plan for a commencement at Byers Field. Based on their recommendations and the feedback from our district survey, we will be moving forward with a virtual commencement for the Class of 2020.  High school graduation is a milestone event and we are committed to making this virtual ceremony special and memorable for all of our graduates.  


To honor the wishes from the survey, each student will be able to bring five family members with them to watch them walk the Valley Forge stage in their cap and gown, hear their name announced, and receive their diploma.  We will be filming each graduate as well as taking an official photo.  The film will be edited together with all the traditional speeches and made available at a later date.


To accommodate our families as best as possible, we have created a sign-up for you to choose one day and time slot that works best for you.  Each day will be broken into 30 minute increments for sign-up.  The dates and times for our individual ceremonies are:

  • June 11:  9:00 AM - 3:30 PM 
  • June 12:  9:00 AM - 3:30 PM 
  • June 15:  9:00 AM - 3:30 PM 
  • June 16:  9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
  • June 17:  9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

We request that you click on this Valley Forge Commencement Sign-Up Form to select and register for your commencement day and time slot.  The deadline to register is June 1, 2020.  We will communicate further details and procedures as we approach the dates for filming.
