During the Ceremony

  • The ceremony will start promptly at 7:30 pm on Friday, May 27th. If you cannot attend graduation, we encourage you to view the live stream of this event by visiting the AISD website at www.angletonisd.net.  

    Graduation is a joyous occasion for the seniors and their families, and we want it to be celebrated with proper dignity and decorum.  The ceremony is an honor and a privilege given to the Senior Class and will be conducted in a dignified manner. The school reserves the right to remove any student from the ceremony due to behavior. Out of respect for Angleton High School, the class of 2022, and guests in attendance, you must act accordingly. Please make certain that we keep the focus on the graduating class as a whole.  Do not behave in a manner that takes the attention away from other graduates.  Refrain from blowing air horns during the calling of the names.  Our request for a dignified ceremony can only happen with your cooperation. The school may hold a student's diploma and require the student to complete community service hours for misbehavior at the commencement ceremony before the diploma is given to the student. 

    Please note that we will issue official diplomas for students after graduation during the summer.  Diplomas will be available for pick up at the front desk of Angleton High School throughout the summer.  You will need to bring your school ID or driver's license.

After the Ceremony

  • Family members, visitors, and guests will not be allowed on the field at any time.  

    The administrators on the field will dismiss the graduates in a calm orderly fashion.  All attendees must exit the premises after the ceremony.  Congregating on the field is prohibited.   

Weather Contingency Information

  • In the event of rain, we will continue the ceremony unless the rain is too heavy and/or there is lightning.  If the ceremony is postponed due to rain, we will attempt to hold the ceremony the following day on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at the same time of 7:30 pm.  We do not anticipate any inclement weather at this time.
