Together, we’ll honor the Class of 2020 with a special and safe graduation celebration.
Bishop Hendricken High School is proud to announce Hawks’ Last Flight: The Class of 2020 Drive-Thru & Drive-In Graduation Celebration scheduled for Friday, June 26, 2020.
Full details regarding the evening coming soon, including the conferring of diplomas, social distancing policies, schedule of events, and more.

The evening will kick-off with a special car parade of graduates and their respective families through campus with a faculty honor guard along the route.
The drive-thru celebration will allow seniors a final visit to campus, and more importantly, the opportunity to bid farewell to their beloved teachers and mentors.
Aldrich Mansion, Warwick Neck
Following the campus drive-thru, the festivities will transition to Aldrich Mansion for a drive-in graduation ceremony with live addresses from the valedictorian, salutatorian, and administration followed by a special video presentation featuring each senior in his cap and gown. Immediately following the ceremony, the evening will finish off with a special light show overlooking Narragansett Bay.
The drive-in ceremony will enable the Class of 2020 to come together as a unit one last time, honor each senior, and retain some semblance of the conventional ceremony. Additionally, Aldrich Mansion is the site of our former senior campus and traditionally serves as the host for our “Senior Night” on the eve of graduation. We thought this to be especially fitting as we celebrate our 60th anniversary and this graduating class.
Rain dates for the event are scheduled for the same weekend: Saturday, June 27th & Sunday, June 28th. Move to rain dates will be announced closer to the event, if necessary.
Safety, Social Distancing & Masks
Throughout this special evening, all of our events will adhere to social distancing, face covering, and graduation guidelines set forth by the Rhode Island Department of Health and the Rhode Island Department of Education, respectively.
