Lincoln Charter Graduation Friday Evening

Thomas Lark
Staff Writer

Lincoln Charter School’s two campuses will hold their combined commencement ceremony this Friday evening (June 4th) at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  The ticketed 7:30 PM event will be broadcast live on YouTube at

Chief Administrator Jonathan Bryant says the two campuses have 144 seniors this year, and the graduation rate was 98 percent. Members of the class of 2021 have been accepted to more than 500 colleges and universities. Scholarship and grant monies exceed $7.1 million, Bryant noted.

“They have logged more than 21,000 service hours during their Lincoln Charter tenure,” he added.

Bryant added that more than a fifth of the class of ’21 is comprised of first-generation college students. Seventy-eight percent of the grads plan on attending a four-year institution and 21 percent, a two-year college. Nearly a third of the grads have attended LCS for all 13 years, from kindergarten through 12th grade. Eighty-six percent of the class’s members have been active in at least one club, and 62 percent have participated in at least one sport during their time at LCS.

Last year, when most schools canceled many of their usual graduation events, Lincoln Charter made arrangements to hold its ceremony at the Speedway, making use of the giant tv screen there and turning what could have been a disappointment into a celebration.  Most other area schools have already held their graduation ceremonies last weekend, but Charlotte Motor Speedway had the Coca Cola 600 for Memorial Day, and last year's graduation at the Speedway had been so well received that Lincoln Charter wanted this year's grads to have the same experience.
