An Achievable Dream Class of 2020 Graduation

We are preparing to celebrate the amazing Class of 2020! Although we are limited in many ways, An Achievable Dream, in conjunction with Newport News Public Schools, will be finding creative ways to make our Dreamers’ graduation celebration as creative as possible. 

An Achievable Dream Middle & High School’s modified commencement ceremony will be held at Todd Stadium on Friday, June 19 at 10:00 a.m. For more information on the details of the commencement ceremony, click here.

In conjunction with Newport News Public Schools’ graduations plans, An Achievable Dream will be celebrating and supporting our graduates in the following ways surrounding graduation:

Spirit Week

  • An Achievable Dream Middle & High School will participate along with all other Newport News high schools senior Spirit Week during the week of June 1-5. These events are planned in accordance with current social distancing guidelines. AAD faculty and staff are planning exciting activities for this week including scheduled pick ups for caps and gowns, cords, hoods, and senior t-shirts; virtual recognitions and superlatives; SAME awards; online contests; and even a DJ during the scheduled pickup session!

On-Site at graduation

  • Depending on governor’s orders, CDC guidelines, and NNPS guidelines, we will work in conjunction with NNPS to have a videographer and photographer onsite at graduation.
  • Students and their families will receive a special surprise gift from Dr. Vreeland and An Achievable Dream once they have received their diploma and exited Todd Stadium.

Graduation video

  • In collaboration with NNPS, we will create a special video with footage from the graduation celebration, and this will be shared with students and families, as well as An Achievable Dream Inc.’s social media pages. 

Class Sponsors

  • The Class of 2020 Class Sponsors, the executive leadership team at Newport News Shipbuilding, are extremely proud of the graduating class. The class sponsors will be invited to watch the graduation live stream and will be invited to help celebrate the students in various ways.
