Cap & Gown

SENIORS, Herff Jones will be back taking orders Wednesday, November 8th during ALL LUNCH PERIODS.  Herff Jones orders can be done online at Herff Jones  or call them at 770-795-1626.

Even if you are unsure if you will graduate, order anyway because if you don't, they will give you a full refund!


Baccalaureate is a ceremony that will be in May at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church. All Seniors and their Families are invited to be at the ceremony. There is no limit to the number of family members each senior can bring.

Seniors will need to arrive at Johnson Ferry Baptist at 5:00 that day, ready to stay until the ceremony is finished. You will wear your graduation gown, not the cap.

There will be a simple reception in the church Fellowship Hall immediately after the ceremony.

There is a religious element/tradition to this ceremony, therefore it is not a school function. It is completely separate from Graduation and is run by parent volunteers and funded by senior family donations.

Graduation Tickets Policy

Wheeler's process for distributing graduation tickets is as follows:

Each student will receive an automatic 2 tickets for graduation.  Students are able to request additional tickets from October 1, 2017 through April 1, 2018.  Please click here to submit a request for extra tickets.  We cannot guarantee that students will receive the full number of tickets requested, but we will do our best to get each student as close to their requested number as possible.

Ticket numbers will be made available to students in Homeroom after Spring Break.  Please note that all tickets will be distributed on the last day of graduation practice.

Additionally, per Wheeler policy, students will not receive more than 4 tickets if they fall in any one of the following three categories:

1. Students who have received any OSS during the 2017-2018 school year.

2. Students who have more than 15 unexcused tardies during the 2017-2018 school year.

3. Students who have any outstanding fines, including media center fines, book fines, and parking fines

Diploma Distribution Policy

Diplomas will be available for pickup after Graduation on the Football Field. The cafeteria will be used in case of rain.  In order to receive their diplomas, students must turn in their graduation gown.  They keep their hats and tassels.  Additionally, students will be required to complete community service hours on Wheeler's campus prior to receiving their diploma if they fall in one of the following categories:

1. Students who miss any practice, are late to any practice, or leave early from any graduation practice.

2. Students who conduct themselves in any way during the Graduation Ceremony that is not consistent with the distinguished nature of the program.
