A South Carolina elementary school is being sued by an atheist group because the school's fifth grade graduation ceremony is scheduled to be held in the chapel at a local Christian university.

The American Humanist Association is suing the Mountain View Elementary School, challenging the graduation's location at North Greenville University. Greenville County school district is also a named defendant in light of the fact that the district allows student-led prayers at the fifth grade ceremony.

According to Matt Sharp, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, which has filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the school, if the ceremony were held at the school, students would be limited to three attendees who would sit in cramped chairs designed for small children.  With respect to the claim regarding student-led prayers, Sharp believes the school is "doing the right thing by saying, We're not going to censor students. They have First Amendment rights to express their beliefs."

According to news reports, the named plaintiffs who are parents of Mountain View students suggested that the family would encounter "unconstitutional, school-affiliated prayers" at the school's graduation ceremony if it were held in the college chapel.
