HCPSS releases the schedule for Commencement for ALL Howard County Public High Schools in the spring (generally late March / early April).  Until that time, we do NOT know the date of the Graduation Ceremony.   Once HCPSS publishes the 2023 schedule here, we will share the details with Raider Nation.


Seniors! You can begin ordering caps and gowns as well as other graduation essentials. You can place your order here. All caps/gowns/ tassels will be delivered to school about 2 weeks before graduation. All other memorabilia will be sent directly to your house.


Senior Portraits: Oct. 26 & 27, 2022

(Class of 2023)

If you did NOT have your Senior Portraits taken this summer, this is your LAST opportunity to have your senior portraits taken AT Atholton High School.

Please read the following instructions for creating a Senior Portrait appointment at AHS for October 26th or 27th.

IMPORTANT: If you do not get your senior portrait over the summer (2022) or on October 26th or 27th you will need to schedule an appointment directly with Prestige Portraits and go to their studio in Hanover or Rockville.

To help with the "No-Touch" policy, students/parents are asked to pay the sitting fee online when making their appointment, as no monetary exchanges will take place at the school/location site.
