    Graduation

    Gas South Arena (formerly Infinite Energy Arena) in Gwinnett County

    Venue Parking

    Seniors will receive a free parking pass for themselves. All other guests must pay $5 for parking. This can be paid by debit/credit card -- no cash. We recommend paying for parking in advance through this link:  Prepaid Parking. This link will be available until May 22. After that, you will have to pay at the venue on the day of graduation. Click the links below to see where to park at the arena.


    Venue FAQ & Information

    • Arrive early! Arriving early will provide you with time to park and go through security. Have your parking pass ready. If you prepay for parking, print your parking pass or have it ready on your mobile phone to present to the parking attendant.

    • Only clear bags are allowed in the arena. Diaper bags and medical supplies can be contained in non-clear bags but will be subject to inspection in a separate security line with heightened safety standards.

    • Seating is first come, first serve. The arena event staff handle all seating and will not allow you to save seats. If you want to sit together, arrive together.

    • Accessible Parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Guests with a valid disability license plate or hangtag combined with a parking pass will be directed to park in an accessible parking space, or the nearest parking space should an accessible space not be available. The individual to whom the disability license plate or hangtag was issued must be present.

    • ADA seating is available in the arena. Event staff attendants will be available to help you as needed and will allow one guest to accompany the person in need.

    • Following the ceremony, graduates will go out into the front plaza. Gas South will have directional signage for graduates to meet families by their last name - i.e. A-F, G-K, etc. Since graduates are not allowed to have their phones during the ceremony, make plans now to meet your graduate near the appropriate sign or somewhere off arena grounds.

    Medallion Guidelines

    Seniors are eligible to earn a medallion at graduation in the following areas: advanced academic, fine arts, foreign language, and/or career tech. To earn a medallion, students must be a member of an honor society and have completed at least 3 courses within their area of completion, as well as additional requirements located HERE. To qualify, students must complete a Pathway Verification Form and turn it into their honor society sponsor (deadline to be announced). If a student qualifies for a medallion in multiple areas, they will receive a “pin” for each additional pathway. Students will only receive 1 medallion. 

     

    Midyear Reports

    Counselors will be working to process midyear reports for ALL Common App schools once all first semester grades are posted on transcripts. Midyear reports should be completed by the end of January. If your student needs a midyear report submitted for a non-Common App school, have them fill out this form: https://forms.gle/L6ibeRFDMw36pkJJ6 and follow up with their counselor.
