Graduation ~ Frequent Asked Questions
Where is the ceremony?
At Woods, in the gym. The school's address is 160 Woodland Grove Lane, Chapel Hill, NC 27516.
Do I need tickets?
The graduation is open to all, and we do not issue tickets. The only reserved seats are those for the graduates themselves and the faculty. All other seats are first come, first served. If you require special assistance, please contact school administration prior to the ceremony at (919) 960-8353.
Where do I park?
The only reserved parking is for handicap parking. All other school parking spaces are open to all. We will also park in the field across Woodland Grove Lane from the school. Parking attendants will be present to assist.
How long does the ceremony last?
We expect the ceremony to last about 2 1/4 hours. It is a long-standing Woods tradition to allow all graduates to address the audience after they receive their diplomas. This tradition makes for a deeply meaningful ceremony, but not a quick one!
Will there be a guest speaker?
Since we allow all seniors to speak at graduation, we do not have an outside speaker.
What time should graduates arrive?
They should report to The Glade at 9:00 a.m.
