As summer rolls around, students all over the country are gearing up to don their robes, caps and gowns to walk the graduation stage in celebration of their scholarly successes.

From that big, important college graduation to the cutest of pre-K commencements, so many celebrity kids are joining the ranks of diploma recipients this year.

For parents like Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor, graduation means their kids will be fully out in the real world post-college, while for others like Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, 2024 marks the year their kids will prepare to fly the nest for the first time, leaving behind home and high school!

But, no matter what grade these grads have successfully completed, their celeb moms and dads are showing pride in their students.

See all the photos from celebrity kids (like Cailey Fleming) earning their degree, or celebrity parents (including Heidi Klum, Katie Holmes, Hilary Duff, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin) who are celebrating their children's major milestones.
