Winfrey will be providing the commencement address. Awkwafina, Jennifer Garner, Lil Nas X, Simone Biles and more are set to give words of wisdom to the class of 2020.

Cyrus will give a special performance of her 2009 song “The Climb.”

Graduates will be able to hold their own virtual graduation through Facebook. Instagram, starting on May 11, will broadcast daily programming that highlights senior experiences such as superlatives and senior skip day.
