Senior Awards Ceremony

Congratulations to the Class of 2020! As a group, the Ray-Pec High School Class of 2020 has qualified for and/or earned the potential of $1,248,144 in tuition and fee savings for the first year of college. Because many of the awards are renewable, the Class of 2020 can potentially receive scholarship money totaling $4,992,579, if accepted and renewed. Due to Covid-19, there was no in-person Senior Awards Ceremony this year. The High School compiled a video to recognize seniors for completion of A+ and International Baccalaureate requirements, and earning scholarships, departmental awards, and other recognition.

Graduation is rescheduled for July 17, 2020

Due to Covid-19, the closure of schools for the rest of the school year, and social distancing requirements, the Ray-Pec High School graduation ceremony set for May 15 has been postponed.

In the hopes of having an in-person ceremony, Ray-Pec High School is scheduling commencement for the Class of 2020 at 8 p.m. Friday, July 17, at Panther Stadium. Further guidance from CDC, state, and local authorities may impact the scheduling for this event. We will keep patrons informed as more details become available. In the event of inclement weather, Saturday, July 18, will be the back-up date.
