Students across the Lowcountry will don caps and gowns starting this week for that long walk across the stage for their high school diplomas.

Many private schools in the area held their ceremonies this weekend, but public school graduations start later this week, with Berkeley Middle College kicking off the festivities on Wednesday.

Berkeley County students matriculate on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and June 2. Dorchester District 2's graduations are on Saturday and Woodland High in Dorchester District 4 graduates its students Thursday.

Charleston County School District's events start June 4. The last graduation this year is Charleston Charter School for Math and Science on June 7.

The North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center are once again the site of many of the celebrations.
