Welcome to Project Graduation 2017

Project Graduation 2017 is on June 2.

Project Graduation is an all-night, alcohol and drug-free party exclusively for graduating AB seniors. The event is held on graduation night from 9:30pm through 5am at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School in Acton, Massachusetts. Since 1989, parent volunteers and community members have produced Project Graduation for our graduating AB seniors. 

Our goal is to provide an evening of fun and safety on graduation night. Project Graduation is always a huge success, with over 90% of the senior class attending. The night features live entertainment, arcade games, psychics, crafts, a casino, lots of food, games and much more. The event is held at the high school in a completely transformed surprise theme that rivals a Broadway set! The theme is kept secret for the for the seniors until they arrive at the school for the event at 9:30pm on graduation night. The community is invited to attend an open house from 8:00-9:00pm before the party.

Project Graduation is a non-profit, 501c3 tax-exempt organization. Our tax ID number is 04-3116032. We do not receive any funding from the school budget. This event is held each year thanks to the generosity of parents, townspeople and the Acton Boxborough Business Community.

Project Graduation 2017 in a Nutshell

  • Open House for Community 8:00-9:00pm through ABRHS Auditorium Entrance.
  • Check in for seniors through ABRHS Auditorium Entrance between 9:30-11:00 pm on June 2. Doors to the event will open at 10:00 pm; bring an ID, $20 if you haven't pre-paid, maybe a jacket/extra t-shirt—that's all you'll need
  • Enjoy food, activities and prizes throughout the night. Print out the map of the school areas and a list of activities and bring it along. Hint: Get your caricature done early, so you don't miss out!
  • Check out the casino, air hockey, basketball, DJ hair/nails, arts & crafts, food and fun through the halls—even a quiet room with movies!
  • You'll need your phone to receive texts instead of waiting in lines, but don't worry, we'll have two Charging Stations set up to keep you going!
  • If you must leave early, your parents need to complete the attached form. Your parents will be called at the time you check out (even 2 am!) so they can be sure you arrive home safely. If they do not answer…you cannot leave! No check-out after 3:00 am. You'll have to stay for the PRIZES @ 3:30 and then the hypnotist and breakfast, then go home.
  • Raffle drawings happen at 3:30 am in the Auditorium. If you are not present you cannot win.
