The commencement of the Class of 2024 of Community High School will take place at 10 am on Friday, May 24, 2024 at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas. This page will serve as the one-stop-shop for all information related to graduation.

All graduating seniors will receive 15 complimentary tickets. If you need additional tickets, Community HS requests that you first check with other families to see if they are not using tickets first. If you cannot find extra tickets from other families, please submit this form before May 10.

Parking is available for $10 pre-paid online, or $15 at the gate. We highly recommend pre-ordering tickets to expedite entry into the parking lot, and for a reduced price. Purchase your tickets here: www.curtisculwellcenter.com

A free live stream of the commencement ceremony will be provided by the District on the Community Braves Network. Viewers can find the stream at www.communityisd.org/network, as well as on the Community Braves Network app available on iPhone and Android devices.

General Notes

Graduation is to be a respectful event. Family and friends should listen quietly to all student and faculty speeches, and refrain from shouting as names are called. Please be respectful of all graduates and their families. Every family wants to hear the name of their graduate as he or she
walks across the stage.

To help expedite the ceremony and not disrupt the next graduating class, it is requested that you meet your graduate outside of the CCC following the ceremony.
