Graduation Date, Time, and Location

Franklin High School’s graduation is (tentatively) June 30, 2023 at 5:00 PM at Memorial Stadium.

Tickets for families and guests will be available to seniors starting June 5th.

Cap and Gown Orders

Some seniors received their caps and gowns on 3/1/23. Students mistakenly received these items before all orders were received by Franklin High School. No other orders will be handed out due to the verification process that must occur before seniors receive their graduation items. We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion.

The remaining caps & gowns will be handed out on Senior Checkout Day, which is currently set for Thursday, June 22, 2023.

Any seniors that need to order a cap and gown should order them through National Achiever:

Financial Assistance

Students that need help paying for their cap and gown should check in with Ms. Agnes in room 114.
