Graduation Items

As graduation approaches we wanted to highlight a few important items:  May will quickly turn into June.  

The Graduation Parade and Prom are June 24th. The Graduation parade starts at 6:30pm and line up begins at 6:00 pm.  The prom starts at 8:30 pm at the Old Orchard Inn

About Prom/Grad Parade (June 24, 2024):
Horton’s Prom/Graduation parade is one of the best things to come out of COVID! Begun in 2021 when indoor group events were shut down and prom was cancelled, Horton has continued this new tradition as a great way for friends, family and the community to support our graduates on prom day. It is an inclusive event on Main St Wolfville where students walk with a prom date, friend, or friend group in their best attire (prom attire or something that they feel special in), walk the red carpet and get a photo, and are announced to the audience by emcees. It eliminates the need for a fancy and elaborate vehicle to arrive to prom in. 

How the Day Looks:

2:30-5:00 pm Irving Centre is reserved for photos (Possible group photo 3:45-4 pm).  This is a drop in session for the photos, and is optional.  

5:00-6:30 pm Main Street Wolfville shut down and volunteers prep the area (grads will be off eating or doing their own thing)

6:30-8:00 pm Parade on Main Street Wolfville (Acadia arena has been secured in the event of rain)

8:30 pm approx- Prom at Old Orchard Inn (graduates only)

Previous Years:

If you haven’t been to the event before, this is a video clip from the first year (note some things will look different now as this was during social distancing and the parade route has been adjusted).

Prom Tickets:

Tickets will be distributed to students and their guests for the prom. Prom is FREE at Horton!  These are more a keepsake but students need to sign up below if they are bringing a guest that is not a Horton High School student:

Prom Guest Sign Up – this is also posted in the Grad Google Classroom.  

Graduation Night:

Graduation will be happening at Horton at 7:00 pm on Thursday June 27th. There are no tickets but we ask that families keep their # of guests to 4-6 people.  An alert on reserved seating will be sent in June. 

Safe Grad:

Safe Grad is happening immediately following graduation (10:00 PM ish). This will take place at the Acadia sports complex and the details will be outlined in a document sent to you via the Safe Grad Committee in June.

Students will need to sign up for the Safe Grad following a link when it is provided by the Safe Grad Committee:
