    Graduates will walk across the graduation field, enter the stands area and proceed to exit at Gates 12 and 13.

    Inclement Weather

    In the event that a graduation ceremony is canceled due to inclement weather, the ceremony will take place the following day, at 10:00 AM, at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Gates will open for make up ceremonies at 8:00 AM. In the event that a graduation ceremony is paused due to inclement weather, graduates, staff, and guests will be directed to specific areas in which to safely take shelter.


    Parking in-field is by permit only. Schools will issue these permits to these students and parents. This will be for special guests and students with mobility concerns. Students are expected to park in front in the student section, which will be near gates 12 and 13. Students will be shuttled to the Media Center area once they park. Parent parking will be at Gates 12 and 13.

    All guests parking in the AMS main lots should use the map provided and follow the directions of AMS staff upon arrival. Disability parking will be prominently designated and, for guests with mobility issues, our team will assist in transporting to seating areas.
