It's a bittersweet moment for the Class of 2020. After years of hard work and countless all-nighters, they finally get to graduate. Unfortunately, they didn't get to march and receive their diplomas in person due to the pandemic. Despite the online classes and cancelled graduation rites, the Class of 2020 made it through.

Below, we look back at the proud moments of celebrities who graduated this year:

Angelina Cruz

Angelina graduated from high school this year (she studied at De La Salle Santiago Zobel) and even though the ceremony hasn't pushed through, mom Sunshine Cruz couldn't be prouder. "May kolehiyala na ako!" she says in her congratulatory post for her daughter. 

Magui Ford

Magui also graduated from high school this year and because her graduation rites were held online, she and her family put up their own ceremony at home. Her kuya Daniel Padilla even handed her a diploma as her name got called.


Vivoree Esclito

Vivoree had to balance her showbiz career and her academics, but this year, she finally graduated from high school. She even received two awards, a Character Award for Generosity and an Academic Award for Philippine Politics and Governance. It wasn't an easy road for Vivoree, but she made it through in the end. "Napa ‘ayoko na’ at ‘bahala na’ na lang ako. Hindi ko naman akalaing malalagpasan ko rin pala ‘to," she shares in her Instagram post.
