Clear Creek ISD seniors from five of the district’s high schools will receive their diplomas at NRG Stadium later this summer, according to the district’s communications office.

The district will host commencement ceremonies on July 25 and 26, according to an April 24 email blast. Clear View High School and Clear Horizons Early College High School ceremonies will be held at Clear Falls High School on July 25, and Clear Brook, Clear Creek, Clear Falls, Clear Lake and Clear Springs high schools will have their ceremonies the following day at the stadium.

Each high school will have a designated ceremony time, which has not yet been determined, per the email. All graduations will also be livestreamed.

Seniors can pick up their caps and gowns during the week of May 4 at their respective campuses—except for Clear Horizons students, who will pick the materials up at League City Intermediate School—between 4-7 p.m. Each campus has been assigned a specific day during the week.

NRG Stadium is home to the National Football League's Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, among other large-scale events. The stadium can seat more than 70,000 people.



Superintendent Greg Smith said in an April 17 interview that the district is doing everything possible to ensure it does not forget about its graduating seniors.

“They deserve all the dignity and respect and honor that should be bestowed upon them, so we need to find ways to get that done,” Smith said.
