    Class of 2018 Commencement

    Due to extensive renovations at Finn Stadium, scheduled to begin in May, the commencement ceremony for the SHS Class of 2018 will be held at Nolan Field in Ansonia. The date will be announced at the April Board of Education meeting. While this is certainly disappointing to our graduating seniors and parents, having the ceremony at Nolan Field will allow us the opportunity to have distribution of the number of tickets and a ceremony similar to what we have done in the past on our campus.

  • Regarding SHS 2018 Graduation:

    We know this is a big change. We understand there is some disappointment, but we are committed to having a well-run, memorable high school graduation ceremony for our hardworking students. However, due to extensive renovations at Finn Stadium, scheduled to begin in May, our graduation ceremony will be held at Nolan Field in Ansonia. The date will be announced, as always, at the April BOE meeting.

    Nothing is ideal about the situation, but this is a better option than doing it indoors.

    The plan is to have the refurbished field ready for September. We ask for your understanding and flexibility. Together we can make this a positive ceremony for the students. That is our goal!

Within this environment, we expect all students to be engaged learners and critical thinkers who demonstrate technological literacy. The Shelton High School student is expected to meet academic, social and civic expectations.

We encourage students to challenge themselves academically and to rise to their full potential. Students are also encouraged to participate in clubs, on teams and in school productions.
