    The commencement ceremony will be held at:

    accesso ShoWare Center, 625 W James St, Kent
    Saturday, June 8th, 2024 at 12:30 a.m.

    There is no cost for graduation tickets. Each graduate will receive 8 FREE tickets for Commencement. These tickets will be distributed during lunches the week of June 3, as students are cleared for High School and Beyond Plan, fines and credits. The limited number of tickets is due to seating restrictions at ShoWare. Those graduates who feel they need additional tickets are encouraged to talk to fellow graduates who may not need their full allotment.

    Parking is free at the ShoWare site as well as the Park and Ride across the street. Other parking areas are at the Regional Justice Center parking structure and other areas downtown Kent. Spots at ShoWare will fill up so please plan on using the Park and Ride or other areas.

    Please see the Graduation Guide-2024 for more information on ShoWare policies, graduation attire, and more.
