After the graduation ceremony is complete on June 26, St. Dominic Catholic High School will join West Central High School in a joint community vehicle parade in Rocky Mountain House.

Drive-in graduation planned for students in Rocky Mountain House

Graduates and their family will be able to drive up to the stage

Students at a Rocky Mountain House high school will be able to walk across the stage June 26 to receive their diplomas.

The event at St. Dominic Catholic High School follows health protocols and recommendations, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools said Wednesday.

Graduates and their immediate family will be able to drive up to a stage set up in the back parking lot.

Then, the graduate will cross the stage in their cap and gown while getting their photo taken. After the student descends from the stage, they will leave along with their family in their vehicle.

“Despite COVID-19, we are very pleased to offer our students at least components of a traditional graduation ceremony this year,” said principal Pat Hughes.

“With all of our Grade 12 students graduating this year, we are proud of their perseverance and hard work. Graduation is a big deal not only for students, but also their families as they start a new chapter in their life.

“Being a small, rural school, our community is like a family, and we feel graduation is such an important milestone to celebrate.”

After the graduation is complete, St. Dominic students will join West Central High School graduates in a joint community vehicle parade.
