Join us for one of Alpha Omega Academy’s 2020 graduations. AOA will be hosting three graduations, two regional and one virtual ceremony. These ceremonies typically take place in May or June. The academy also offers a virtual ceremony as an option for students unable to travel to one of our scheduled ceremony locations.
This year, for the regional events, we are trying something new. While we are continuing to hosting one event in Orlando, Florida, the second location will be determined by the graduates. Next week, a poll will be sent out to the seniors with a few options. The results of this poll will decide where we host the second graduation event.
Each regional ceremony will be a traditional cap and gown event. These ceremonies will include a special welcome, an inspirational address to the graduates, and presentation of diplomas. It is followed by a reception for the graduates and their invited guests. For those participating in one of the regional ceremonies, there is an optional Day Away team building activity the morning of graduation. In order to have the Day Away event, ten or more people must sign up for this event. Registration will be emailed out to graduates signed up for each regional ceremony. Both regional ceremonies begin at 7 p.m.
The virtual ceremony will be broadcasted live online, allowing graduates to participate from anywhere in the world. This gives graduates the ability to host their families and guests to share this special time. The ceremony will include an address to graduates and a presentation of diplomas. The virtual ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. (CT).
To register for one of the three graduation ceremonies, you should receive an email, as well as a message in the Genius Dashboard for students and parents. The deadline to sign up for graduation is in March, and you will not be able to sign up until January.
After you sign up, your education coordinator will reach out to collect payment. The cost to participate in a regional ceremony is $200 per graduate. There is no fee for guests. The cost to participate in the virtual ceremony is $75 per graduate. All graduates participating in a ceremony receive a cap and gown, tassel, and a senior T-shirt. Seniors can also sign up to just receive a cap, gown, and tassel. This cost is $50 plus any international or expedited shipping.
More details will be released as they are finalized before sign-up starts in January. We hope to see you there!
