33 Graduation Instagram Captions For The Class Of 2024

An early congratulations to the class of 2024; your commencement ceremony is closely approaching. Whether you are graduating with a job lined up, or you’re taking it one day at a time, this is a time to be proud of all of your accomplishments thus far and look forward to the next step in your journey

The class of 2024 is a special class in particular because a lot of the college students who are graduating college this year were also 2020 graduates in high school. If this was you, that means that due to the pandemic, there was a good chance you may have had a modified graduation ceremony (if you had one at all). 

With this in mind, you know the class of 2024 will be going all-out this time around when it comes to celebrating their graduation to make up for what they might’ve missed out on in the past. (If their schools don’t *also* cancel this year’s ceremonies, that is.) 

What better way to commemorate the celebrations — no matter what they look like — than with Instagram captions to show off on your social media the fact that you graduated and are proud of it.

So for all of the new and soon-to-be grads, here are 33 graduation Instagram captions for the class of 2024.
