Project Graduation is the exciting annual after-graduation party for the newest graduates of SMCA. This amazing night of fun, food, music and prizes takes place in a supervised, substance-free environment.

Project Graduation keeps our kids and community safe on one of the deadliest driving nights for seniors nationwide by providing a fun alternative to student-run parties.

Graduates board buses late-night on May 25th and are transported to a secret location, where the fun begins with tons of games & prizes! There will be food, food, swag, and more food! Buses return tired graduates to school early in the morning on May 26th.

Last year almost every member of the class attended the festivities and were blown away by the great time they had!
