Ariel Winter is officially a high school graduate.
The 18-year-old Modern Family star graduated from high school on Monday in Los Angeles, the ceremony taking place at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Winter looked glamorous on her big day, sporting a knee-length nude dress, matching Christian Louboutin stilettos, and styling her bright red hair in voluminous waves.
Winter excitedly Instagrammed a pic of her cap and gown on Monday, writing, "It's actually done...I GRADUATED."
The actress had her sister and former legal guardian, Shanelle Gray, and her two adorable nieces on hand to support her.
Winter graduated from Campbell Hall School, a private school in Studio City, California. She is headed to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the fall.
On Sunday, Winter Instagrammed a snap of herself in a lace white dress excitedly looking forward to her graduation ceremony.
"From Baccalaureate to Graduation tomorrow and then UCLA bound #classof2020," she captioned the pic.
Monday marks just the latest milestone in Winter's life. In March, she talked to Ellen DeGeneres about being emancipated at 17 years old.
"You handle your own business affairs, your own living arrangements; your own money," she explained.
In 2012, Gray was granted temporary custody of her younger sister, following allegations that Winter had "been the victim of ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name calling, personal insults about minor and minor's height, attempts to 'sexualize' minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time" by her mother, Chrisoula 'Crystal' Workman. Winter's mother denies the accusations.
"It's most definitely hard to grow up in the industry, but just grow up in any instance without a mother from a very young age," Winter acknowledged. "It has been very sad for me, but at the same time it's been much better for me emotionally and physically to be on my own and have a better, safer household and support system."
