On Friday, June 2 at 4 pm, Lincoln Academy will graduate 150 students in the Class of 2023. The ceremony will take place at 4 pm on the Stanley Waltz Track Field.

Barring extreme weather conditions, graduation will be held outside rain or shine. This year some outdoor seating will be under cover; though covered seating is limited and is not reservable. Attendees should be prepared with rain gear if rain is forecast. The ceremony will be live streamed on the Lincoln County Television (LCTV) website, and this stream will be projected inside the gym for anyone who prefers to sit inside.

“We look forward to hosting graduation on a sunny Friday in June,” said Head of School Jeff Burroughs. “We will only move in the gym if absolutely necessary for safety reasons. We want to make sure everyone who cares about these graduates is able to celebrate with us.”

Guests who plan to attend graduation should be prepared for weather (bright sun, wind, moderate rain, etc.) and arrive early. Parking is limited on campus. Attendees are encouraged to carpool or take advantage of the LA shuttle to overflow parking at St. Patrick’s Church in Newcastle. The shuttle will run to Lincoln Academy from 2:30-3:30 pm and again at the end of the ceremony.
