What is Grad Night?
Grad Night is a party for the 2023 Santa Clara High seniors. The event takes place on Friday, June 2, 2023, 7:00 pm - 1:00 am. This celebratory event will be held on the school campus in a safe environment under the supervision of parents. We plan to use the large gym, cafeteria, and quad area.

Who is Responsible for Grad Night?
Grad Night is accomplished through the energy, creativity, time, and money of the parents with support from the community. Parents from the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes are involved in Grad Night. It is a party that we, as parents, give as a parting gift to our graduating children. Scholarship tickets are available based on the generous funding from Mission City Community Fund. Apply for scholarship
tickets by sending us an email at

Grad Night is the ultimate all-night action-packed party with all-inclusive food, games, entertainment, dancing, and professional entertainment. It even has puppies.  

What happens at Grad Night?

How can I get involved?

We are grateful for any help you can provide. To host a large event like this, we rely on volunteers and or support to help with set up, clean up, food, supervision, or working a shift.  With each family providing one parent volunteer who can work for a 3-4 hour shift, we will be set! Already, several Class of 2023 parent volunteers are already in place planning and preparing to ensure that Grad Night is ready for our
seniors. Please get involved. Together, we can make it an incredible finale to our children’s high school years (and have lots of fun in the process!) Contact now if you are interested in helping to plan this event.
