Santa Susana High School
2020 Virtual Graduation Celebration
The staff at Santa Susana High School will honor the graduating class with an online, virtual commencement. We'd like to encourage the grads to wear their caps and gowns while listening to some short speeches from the administration and students of the graduating class. Each graduate will be featured with their own slide, which includes a photo and a special message.

The Virtual Ceremony will be on Friday, June 5th at 8:00 PM. Prior to the Virtual Ceremony, we will hold a procession of cars, followed by a parade in our local neighborhood. The Car Parade and Diploma Presentation begins at 5:00 at Santa Susana High School. The details of the different events can be found in our Senior Newsletter.
