Congratulations to our APS Class of 2021!

The conclusion of the 2020-21 school year marks the beginning of a new chapter in life for the Aurora Public Schools Class of 2021. These graduates have a variety of future plans, ranging from attending technical schools and four-year universities to immediately entering the workforce or military. 

Together, they have exemplified grit, resilience and determination. Among their many accolades, the APS Class of 2021 has earned more than $18.8 million in scholarships. This includes Gateway High School senior Jorja Whyte who earned the prestigious 2021 Boettcher Foundation Scholarship and five Daniels Scholars. We commend these rockstars for this wonderful achievement and wish them continued success as they begin the next chapter of their lives! 

We are also excited to share information about our in-person graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2021! Our goal is to celebrate our students while following safety protocols provided by the Tri-County Health Department and other health officials.

All APS graduation ceremonies will be held at the APS Stadium, which is located next to Hinkley High School at 1250 Chambers Rd., Aurora, CO 80011. Please see the dates and times below.
