Senior Parents,
Thank you for your flexibility as we navigate scheduling uncertainties caused by COVID-19. We will have Project Graduation in person if we are able, or we will shower the graduates with gifts from afar! Registration will open as soon as possible. For now, celebrate your senior by ordering them a yard sign personalized with their college choice.
Thank you!

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. There will be food, food, swag, and more food!  Last year almost every member of the class attended the festivities and all were blown away by the great time they had!


Parents should drive their graduates to SMCA in front of the gym at 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Because the goal of this event is to ensure our students' safety, graduates may not transport themselves to or from the school for this event. 
Students cannot bring anything to PG, including purses, pillows, bags or blankets, without special permission (contact Cristina Feldott in advance with food concerns beyond gluten-free). Any attendee who appears to be under the influence will not be permitted to attend. Students will go through security, then board the bus and go to a secret location for a super-fun night! Students will turn in their phones at the event so they may fully participate, and they will be given a Project Graduation shirt, which they will all be asked to wear. Once on the bus, students may not be picked up from Project Graduation during the night without special prior permission. 
Parents should pick up their tired graduates at the Carter Athletic Center on Sunday morning along with all their prizes and swag. Attendees cannot drive themselves home. 

We need lots of volunteers to throw a party this big! Click here to join this fun committee
