Baltimore County schools release 2021 high school graduation schedule; most to take place at Towson’s SECU Arena

Baltimore County Public Schools’ 2021 graduating seniors will have traditional in-person ceremonies to receive their diplomas after school officials release a high school graduation schedule, under COVID-19 safety requirements.

“We had to make accommodations because of the ongoing pandemic,” said Charles Herndon, a school system spokesman.

Most of the graduations will be held at Towson University’s SECU Arena.

“The SECU arena is a very nice, very modern, and very spacious facility,” Herndon said. “Following the guidelines of the CDC, folks will be asked to wear masks, and social distance where possible.”

All dates and times are subject to change based upon health metrics. Students and their families are encouraged to visit the BCPS website for updates.

In mid-May, plans call for Ridge Ruxton, Maiden Choice School, and Battle Monument to have their ceremonies on school grounds. These schools are for special education and typically only have a few graduates per year, Herndon said.

“They serve small populations and have always had graduations at their individual schools,” he said.

Also, the commencement location for the Post-Secondary Functional Academic Learning Support, or PSFALS, program is to-be-determined.
