SLPS high school graduations resume at Busch Stadium after rain delay


ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Public Schools high school graduates were supposed to take the stage at Busch Stadium Thursday, but the rain had other plans for them.

The graduation ceremonies will resume Friday morning at 10:00 a.m.

Graduates from Gateway STEM High School, Clyde C. Miller Career Academy, Central Visual and Performing Arts High School, Cleveland NJROTC High School, and Carnahan High School of the Future will all take to the field.

The gates open up at 9:00 a.m. for guests to be able to find their seat. Each student was allowed to have four guests at the ceremony.

Graduates of seven other SLPS high schools walked the stage set up at Busch Stadium on Wednesday. This is the first time Busch Stadium has ever hosted a graduation. After the district saw seniors miss out on this rite of passage last year due to the COVID pandemic, they wanted to ensure this experience would be safe and memorable.
